  • 2 pound cakes I used Sara Lee
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • fresh strawberries sliced
  • fresh blueberries


  • Slice the pound cake into even slices. Use a circle cutter to cut out a circle from each slice.
  • Beat the heavy cream in a chilled bowl just until soft peaks form. Add in vanilla and sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks from.
  • Spread a layer of whipped cream on one pound cake and layer with blueberries and/or strawberries. Add another slice of pound cake and repeat.
  • Use the blueberries and strawberries to create a design on top if you desire.
