package (10.75 oz) frozen all butter pound cake (in foil container)
pint vanilla ice cream, softened
cup chopped fresh strawberries
Whipped cream and sliced strawberries


  • 1 Remove pound cake from foil container, and line container with cooking parchment paper, leaving paper hanging over 2 sides.
  • 2 Cut pound cake horizontally into thirds, creating 3 layers. Place bottom layer into parchment-lined container.
  • 3 In small bowl, stir together softened ice cream and chopped strawberries. Spread half of the ice cream mixture over bottom layer of cake in container; top with second cake layer.
  • 4 Spread remaining ice cream mixture over that, and top with final layer of cake. Return cake to freezer for about 4 hours or until ice cream is very firm.
  • 5 Remove cake from container, using parchment as handles. Slice and serve with whipped cream and sliced strawberries.

Expert Tips

Using a pound cake that comes in a foil container allows you to make this cake without it becoming a melted, sliding mess…trust me, I've tried it the other way to much heartbreak!

For a twist, use strawberry ice cream--or even chocolate, or different berries to make this cake your own.
