Berries and Cream Vanilla Pound Cake
Creating one-of-a-kind desserts doesn’t have to take hours in the kitchen or even exceptional baking skills.
With a little imagination and the right tools, you can whip up surprisingly delicious sweets that will surprise and delight your friends and family.
Infusing new flavors into your favorite cake or brownie recipe is surprisingly easy when you use bakeware made for the purpose.
You definitely have to check out Baker’s Advantage Fillables Bakeware, which helps home bakers easily create “treat-filled” desserts.
Each bakeware set comes with two pans: One pan creates the bottom half of the cake and forms indentations in the cake you can fill with fruit, puddings, candy and more, while the second pan creates the top half of the cake, which hides the surprise fillings.
And this is how you’re going to “hide” all of that amazing fresh fruit in this vanilla pound cake.
