Berry Pound Cake with Whipped Cream
For the Fourth of July, a pair of pound cakes iced with lightly sweetened whipped cream and topped with blueberries and raspberries will garner grateful salutes.
The cakes have a dark, crusty exterior and a moist, vanilla-kissed interior. Pipe the cream onto the cakes with a pastry bag fitted with a leaf tip -- practice first on parchment paper, weaving back and forth to create a ruffly pattern. Then pile on plenty of berries to make the cakes as vibrant as the Stars and Stripes.
