Get creative with pound cake!

We love a simple pound cake covered in whipped cream and strawberries, these creative ways to use pound cake will become new favorites- just like they did for us!

  1. Once thawed, use it in a parfait. Simply tear or cut into small pieces and layer with dream whip (#1952) and/or pudding- chocolate (#1913) or vanilla (#1914), and top with your choice of berries or cookie crumbles.
  2. Turn it into bread pudding! Simply use any recipe for Bread Pudding and replace the bread with pound cake.
  3. Pound cake french toast. WOW! This is amazing. As with the bread pudding, simply replace the bread with pound cake. It will change your life.
