"This was so easy and delicious. I don't like many frozen cakes but I love frozen pound cake. This made it beautiful and yummy. You can throw it together fast when company's coming."

"I used non-frozen pound cake product and did not add chocolate in the middle. Cake was not high enough to allow for 4 layers, 3 works very nicely. I also used the Coco Real product in place of condensed milk and only added nuts to top of cake in case of food allergies. Very easy & delicious!"

"Well, I fell for this one. The cake sounded good so I clicked on the site only to find you have to be a subscriber.  I used to subsribe to TOH but let the subscription lapse because I could never find a recipe I liked.  Guess I'll have to quench the craving!"
