This was great...next time(and there will be a next time) I will use more of the pound cake. It seemed to get lost in the rest of the ingredients and I love the taste.

This dessert was so delicious! I served it at a good friend's 50th birthday party, and everyone loved it. I put some grated chocolate in the layers as well as on top..really good!
