Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oh, this is the ultimate pound cake for the strawberry everything lover. It's worth the few extra preparation steps. The cake is moist, dense, and full of fresh strawberry flavor. Each bite has a small chunk of strawberries. Alone, the pound cake is fantastic but the drizzle makes it amazing. The doctored canned cream cheese frosting made into a drizzle is not only easy, it's delicious and makes this strawberry cake beautiful when presented.
