Top Review by Acerast

Yum!! The bright flavors of the fruit were a nice contrast to the buttery sweetness of the pound cake. This is a stress-free dessert that can be thawed, sliced, blended and served from the patio - perfect for summer entertaining or on those nights that I don't want to heat up the kitchen. Thanks Charmie777. Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT5.
