I make this for every party I have because it's fantastic. It's my husband's favorite dessert and is always gone quickly.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 17, 2010

I have made this for many years and it has ALWAYS turned out wonderfully. Rather than buying a frozen pound cake, I make my own. It turns out a bit larger (more servings). Also I have used frozen whipped topping in place of the cream to save a few calories and time. I often make it with strawberries because of the price of raspberries. You really can't go wrong with this wonderful treat!
