Sweets for the sweet…

To me, desserts are the perfect social study.  When you’re out with friends and it’s that time when the server asks if anyone wants to see the dessert menu, you get some very definitive answers…

 

the NO folks…

“…Oh no, I just wouldn’t know where to put it.”

“…No thank you, just the check please.”

 

the YES folks…

“…Sure! Whatcha got?”

“…well maybe, but only if someone else will have some too”

 

Whether you’re a YES or NO type of person…dessert is here to stay!

Making dessert for someone is a sure-fire way to show someone how much you care.

And desserts don’t have to be over complicated, they just have to be delicious and prepared with love.  Here is a wonderful dessert that is easy and quite tasty too!

 

Layered Pound Cake Delight

1 Pound Cake (store bought is fine…)

Quart of Fresh Strawberries (washed thoroughly)

2-5 Tablespoons of Sugar (depending on how sweet you want this dessert)

Tub of Whipped Topping (like Kool Whip) thawed

Toppings (like chocolate chips, almonds, chopped up candy bars, etc…)

 

Remove the stems and (plus any less ripe parts of the strawberries), and chop the remaining strawberries into dime size pieces.  Place the strawberries into a glass or ceramic bowl.  Sprinkle the sugar over the berries, and give them a stir to distriute the sugar evenly.  Set this aside for about 5 minutes to allow it to sweeten make it’s own natural syrup.

 

Slice the pound cake into desired thickness (about an inch is perfect).  And place on a small sized plate.  Layer the cake with the strawberry mix with syrup, whipped topping and lastly with the topping(s) of your choice.  You can also garnish with a whole strawberry.  This goes perfectly with a delicious glass of champagne.  Cheers!
