Things You’ll Need:
– 1 or 2 8” baking pans, cooking spray, icing bag or kit, potato masher, 2 boxes jiffy corn muffin mix, 1/2 a bag of large Yukon gold potatoes (about 6-7 potatoes depending on size), lots of butter, a dollop of milk or cream, seasonings, 1 large order of KFC mac n cheese, 1 large order of KFC gravy, and as much KFC chicken as desired.
 
Steps:
1. Bake cornbread layers. 1 box of jiffy per layer and follow directions on the box! Don’t forget to oil the baking pans before pouring.
 
2. While cornbread is baking – Peel, chop, and boil potatoes. Mash until smooth. Add LOTS of butter, a dollop of milk or cream, your seasonings (garlic, salt, pepper, etc.), then mix.
 
3. Let layers cool and once they’re cooled down, spread entire order of mac n cheese in between and let sit.
 
4. Spread smooth potatoes onto the cornbread layers.
 
5. Drizzle gravy on top.
 
6. Optional if piping potatoes – Cut a rivet around the top border of the cake for the piping to sit in so that it doesn’t slide off the edge.

8. Enjoy your savory creation! Happy Birthday, Kentucky!
 
9. Add a little more gravy.

Brian French will speak on all things French Paper at 6:30 followed by an exhibit of over 100 promotional items from FPC’s past. You won’t want to miss this one night event loaded with almost 150 years of history, design, print, and of course paper!

Introducing KY Parks & Crafts, a poster series curated by hellofieldtrip in partnership with KY State Parks Foundation and KY for KY, designed to help support the non-profit mission of the KY State Parks Foundation.

 

Like many parks across the country, funding from the government and through tax dollars isn’t enough. That’s where the Kentucky State Parks Foundation comes in. The great people at this foundation are not bureaucrats, or politicians nor do they answer to them. They are a volunteer organization, solely focused on making our parks enjoyable, accessible, and beautiful places for all of us to enjoy.

 

Each print sold will benefit the Kentucky State Parks Foundation and their cause to help others experience the essence and pride of who we are as a state. There are 16 prints for 16 different parks, each designed by a different kick-ass Kentucky Artist.

 

Starting this Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 we’ll be launching the first 3 parks, Cumberland Falls State Park by Harold Apples, Lake Barkley State Park by Liz Morse, and White Hall Historic Site by Bullhorn. The series will continue each Tuesday until May 15th, so keep an out for your favorite park. Go outside and visit them!
