Traditional vs Non-Traditional Decorations

  • Coconut Lime Pound Cake – Perfect for summertime celebrations! This combination of creamy coconut milk and zesty lime juice will transport your taste buds into tropical paradise.
  • Zucchini Banana Pound Cake – Surprise your friends and family by adding a vegetable into the mix! Grated zucchini add moistness without overpowering the flavor.
  • Red Velvet Cream Cheese Pound Cake – This hybrid dessert has all the decadence of red velvet cake without any fussiness involved in baking it from scratch. The cream cheese frosting takes this pound cake over the top!
