have made it every year for the past 3 years. A great gift item. I just put it on a piece of cardboard covered with foil. Travels great... people ask for it every year

Delicious cake! Very easy to make, baked up lighter and fluffier than I expected. Everyone loves it, including my 2-year-old. I followed the recipe exactly, with regular eggnog and butter and whole eggs. I plan to bake this from now on for our New Year's Eve celebrations, since I don't like drinking eggnog.

I would like to find a pound cake, that is true. All the butter, cream, sour cream and all.
