DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the pound cake into bread-like slices.
  • Toast them in a toaster oven or carefully in the toaster,just until they turn golden brown.
  • Cool for a few minutes.
  • Stack two slices for each sandwich and cut the stack in half diagonally (slicing the sandwich before you fill it makes for fewer crumbs).
  • Tint the frosting by stirring in a few drops of yellow and red food coloring (more yellow than red) to get a shade of orange that resembles American cheese.
  • Carefully spread frosting between the slices of each half sandwich.
  • If you mound the frosting on one slice, then top it with the other and gently press down, the frosting will ooze out a bit and look all the more like melted cheese.
