This is a really good poundcake recipe dessed up for the 4th of July. It was a real hit when I served it about 2 years ago but I didn't get a picture then.

The original recipe for Cream Cheese Blueberry Pound Cake came from my Mom. I added the fresh berries and made it a 4th of July dessert.

You can use any color frosting drizzle and any fresh fruit in center.

The picture is of the original version I made recently with light blue frosting so I adjusted the color to black and white to give you a better idea of what the cake will look like before the berries are placed in the center.
