    So I made a poundcake but, it just lacks something to go on top of it, like a fruit...thing or something. Any ideas?[​IMG]

    I know this sounds funky but I made some marmalade once that didnt set up. I used it on pancakes and on poundcake. It was awesome on the poundcake. I have also taken either raspberries or strawberries and run them thru my food processor with a little agave or honey to make a mostly smooth slightly chunky topping for poundcake or angelfood cake.

    Edited because I really didnt mean that I mix berries with hiney [​IMG]

    Oh cool, thanks everyone! I thought my recipe book would have had a little info on toppings, but no. I did put some black raspberry jam on a single slice, that was good. I like the honey idea, and the whipped cream sounds good too! [​IMG]

    KenK--how funny is that, when I think of peaches, I think of a sassy, fat, grey haired cat, not the fruit---I'm officially crazy! [​IMG]

    Pound cake needs an enhancer? It's nearly solid butter and eggs; it shouldn't need anything.

    However, to dress up, you can mix milk and powdered sugar into a glaze and mix a bunch of poppy seeds into it. Pour over the cake and allow to drip down over the sides and set before serving.

    Serve a slice with some fresh fruit and whipped cream, or fresh fruit and ice cream. A scoop of ice cream with chocolate sauce.

    Whip cream with a splash of Amaretto folded into it. That's good with a couple slices of fresh peach.

    Any type of fresh berries.

    Curt into cubes and layer with vanilla pudding, whipped cream, and fresh (or canned) fruit. That's a trifle.

    Yes I use a glaze also it is just the right touch without going over the top.
