Chocolate Refrigerator Cake and Kerrygold Make Over

One of my favourite cakes to bake is Chocolate Refrigerator Cake. I base mine on Annabel Karmel’s recipe with a few tweaks. Instead of apricots, raisins and pecans, I use chopped dates, sultanas and toasted coconut pieces. Also I will quite happily use salted or unsalted butter in it.

Here’s a photo of a batch I made using Kerrygold spreadable butter. This was bought using a 50p off voucher which I received earlier in the year when I blogged about Bruschetta. And I’m expecting some more vouchers in the post this week.

But have you seen the new look Kerrygold in the shops this week? The limited edition packs will run for 8 weeks from 1st October.


Kerrygold Butter packaging has had a super stylish make over – thanks to renowned Irish fashion designer, Orla Kiely. The iconic Irish butter producers have teamed up with the world-famous fashion designer to transform their iconic golden packaging with a refined ‘catwalk’ chic. Orla, famed the queen of prints, has adapted her legendary flower hallmark to give Kerrygold a new limited edition designer sheen. The flowers depicted are a reflection of a lush Irish meadow and the colour pallet used – faun, green and shades of cream – has been specifically selected to complement the inspiration of a meadow while staying true to Kerrygold’s iconic green and gold signature colours.


In addition, Kerrygold is offering the chance to win Orla Kiely kitchen items every week as part of an on pack promotion running across the limited edition packs. These prizes include cake stands, butter dishes and cake tins which can be won by visiting the Kerrygold UK Facebook page.

So which do you like best – the traditional Kerrygold packaging or the Orla Kiely make over?

Disclosure.  This post mentions a product for which I received a discount.  All opinions are my own.
