    clbacon, thank you for the nice compliment. MOST of the time I do NOT frost my pound cakes. These pictures reflect 2 different cakes. One was baked and left plain as we prefer it; the other, got the leftover frosting in my freezer. The cake is gorgeous with fresh strawberries atop the frosting. Didn't have any berries or anything else to decorate the cake so had to leave it with just frosting. Boo hoo.

    annieamie, thank you! When I bake a pound cake in a tube pan, instead of prepping the pan with butter and flour, I use butter and sugar! It makes it easier to get out of the pan; I've never had one "stick" using this method. I usually brush off the sugar but this time it formed a perfect ring around the cake and I decided to leave it. Don't fix what isn't broken kinda thing.

    That's one pretty pound cake! How did you get the circle of sugar around the outter upper portion of the cake? Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. I'm sure it tastes as great as it looks!
