I made this cake into a wedding cake. Since then, it has been requested at every special occasion of everyone attending. They seem to have n idea it's just pound cake. So, while this cake certainly does not need any frosting or frills, adding a delicious cream cheese frosting, or draping it with layers or ganache, or filling it with fresh or preserved fruit, and decorating it beautifully, simply, and gracefully can make it truly something spectacular.
INCREDIBLE! I totally screwed up and still received rave reviews at the pot luck lunch I carried it to. I just got a new stove and somehow managed to turn it off when setting the timer so it sat there for 45 minutes just warming up. I restarted the oven with the cake in there and it cooked up beautifully. I just knew I was going to have to throw it away!
