“This is so easy to make and so delicious. You buy the pound cake--fresh or frozen (or if you are feeling very ambitious, you could make it from scratch). I did serve this frosting on Rainy Day Yellow Cake and it was great, as that cake is a little like pound cake but in bigger form. Now, I WILL TELL YOU--I don't ever frost the cake; I make the frosting and put big dollops of frosting on the cut pound cake. That is easier than the other way and you get sooooo much more of the frosting. But either way it is good.”
