Here's a delightful dessert that only looks like you fussed all day. With its attractive appearance and wonderful taste, no one will know that you saved time by spreading an easy-to-prepare frosting on a store-bought pound cake.
"No one will know this fancy dessert started with a handy boxed cake mix," assures Sandra Castillo of Watertown, Wisconsin. "We enjoy the scrumptious treat throughout the year for special dinners, potlucks and even picnics."
Meet the Cook: The reason this is such a favorite is it's a little different yet quick and easy. At one time, my husband was a mess sergeant in the National Guard. When it came to cooking, there was always a little discussion over doing it my way or the Army way! We have four grown children and five grandchildren.

Thanks to frozen pound cake and a can of pie filling, this torte's easy to make. If layers slide, keep them in place with toothpicks around the edges as you build. Just remove before serving. —Joan Causey, Greenwood, Arkansas

MY MOTHER used this recipe many times, and it was my favorite. She's gone now, but her memory lingers each time I bake this cake. The layers are different flavors, and combined they're deliciously unique. Every time I serve it, I have to send my guests home with the recipe!
