Pound cake is expensive to make, and may not turn out the way that you like. Elegant Survival published the news last year that pound-cake can be bought in three-packs at warehouse stores like Sam's Club for about two dollars each.
I have used these pound-cakes successfully for making baked Alaska, in combination with vanilla ice cream and meringue. Strawberry or raspberry jam may be layered into the cake as well. Please see my Elegant Dessert page for Valentine's Day dessert ideas.©M-J de Mesterton 2011
