This delectable recipe comes from Aubrey Cook, a finalist in the "Martha" show "Best Bakers in America"series. Hints of almond and lemon extract balance the pound cake's buttery flavor, and a sweet maple glaze tops the cake with a marbled pattern.
John Baricelli, manager of the prep kitchen at the television studio in Wesport, added a hint of almond to the traditional Swiss meringue and used it to top Martha's birthday cake with decorative stars.
