TWD: You just need a little imagination

Well, I did end up baking, but I went back to the archives.  I need a dessert for tomorrow, but I really only wanted one step.  Don't get me wrong, the Peppermint Cream Puff Ring will be on my table one day.  Just not this one.

Instead, I made the Perfection Pound Cake.  Here it is just after it came out of the oven:  

Mmmm.  It's golden brown on the outside and it smells heavenly.  Here it is all wrapped up so it can "ripen" as Dorie recommends.



Now, tonight it will be sliced into slabs and covered with fresh strawberries macerated in a little sugar and an alcohol to be named later.  I will also put just a dollop of whipped cream on top.  I will not, however, have pictures.  It might be a little hard to explain to our hosts why it is I'm whipping out my camera and stopping everyone from enjoying the goodness.  

Never fear, though.  Next week I will be right back in the saddle.  The chosen recipe is Mixed Berry Cobbler.  YUM!  Thank you to Beth of Our Sweet Life for choosing the yummyness.

I've wanted to try Dorie's pound cake. Looks like it turned out well and your ideas for serving it sound great!

Here's another one I've been wanting to try. Especially since the berries are so good right now and would be so heavenly on top.

I haven't tried that pound cake yet. I've had a horrible experience making pound cake and I'm still a little scared. Yours looks fabulous, it'll be delicious with the strawberries. :)

Wow, your pound cake looks delicious by the look of its golden buttery crust! I like the idea of adding fruit and a dash of something boozey...YUM!

I can see you at the liquor store asking for "a liquor to be determined later...." no, wait that would be me who would be that clueless...your cake looks lovely and next time: TAKE OUT THAT CAMERA, I am sure they will think it is charming that you are doing so.

Mmmm, it's hard to beat pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream.

Yum!
