Strawberry Pound Cake Ice Box Dessert {tutorial}

July 21, 2011 in pound cakes - 2 Comments - 3 min read

Saying the name of this sweet is a mouthful!  But it is such a good, cool, summer dessert, that the long name makes up for it.  This ice box dessert is nice because you can make it as homemade as you like, or as simple or complex as you like.  If you’re running short on time, you can pick up a box of pudding mix and some pound cake at the store and still have this dessert taste yummy.  The other thing I like about this dessert is that you can put it in the fridge overnight.  The pound cake won’t get too soggy.  (I know that because I tested it with my grandma and mom today.  I brought them over a jar and we all had a little bit, and the pound cake was still dense, like a good pound cake should be.)

You will need pound cake, either homemade (my favorite is a cream cheese pound cake from the book Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey–that is the pound cake in the pictures) or store-bought, strawberries, white chocolate chips, and custard (or vanilla pudding).  And some mason jars to layer the treats in.

Take a round cutter and cut down into the pound cake to creat circles close to the circumference of the Mason jars. 

Cut as many out as you can.

Once you press them out of the circle cutter, slice them two times, horizontally (so you have three circles of pound cake from the one cookie cutter).

I made custard for the very first time.  Cinnamon custard, for that matter.  I think what scared me most about making this lovely concoction was that you have to heat up egg yolks, and I was deathly afraid that I’d cook the eggs and have scrambled egg in my custard.  But I didn’t!  I was really impressed with myself…however, it could have just been beginner’s luck, but I will assume it’s my magical skills in the kitchen.  hehe

Now the fun part–layering!

Have out the cold custard (or cold vanilla pudding), sliced strawberries, and white chocolate chips.

Put a slice of pound cake in the bottom of the jar, followed by some custard, then strawberries, and lastly the white chocolate chips.  Repeat layers until you reach the top.

Take a top circle of pound cake and place that on the very top, pressing down slightly, and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and cinnamon.

My son wanted some really bad, but my husband didn’t want to share.  (I don’t blame him!)  Besides, babies shouldn’t eat that much sugar. We gave him a strawberry instead.

You can eat this dessert  right away, share with a friend, or put in the fridge, with Saran wrap on top, to eat later.  Whichever way you decide, you’ll enjoy something sweet and cool.  xoxo

Strawberry Pound Cake Ice Box Dessert

printable version

1 loaf pound cake

sliced strawberries

cold vanilla custard (or cold vanilla pudding)

white chocolate chips

cinnamon and powdered sugar for dusting

Mason jars

Using a circular pastry or cookie cutter, cut down into the pound cake, making as many circles as you can.  (Make sure the cutter is close to the size of the base of your jar.)  Cutting horizontally, slice three even circles for each one circle cut out with the cutter.  Layer the jars as follows: pound cake, custard, strawberries, and white chocolate.  Layer until you get to the top of the jar.  Place a circular top on the very top of the jar (a circle that is a little more dome-shaped on top).  Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon.

Serve right away, or store in the fridge, covered with plastic wrap, until ready to serve.

    Daddy daughter dance at church last night. Grace was so excited she put her dress on as soon as she got home from school. I asked her to show me a dance move, and she said, “I just want to twirl.” Thanks @riverwestchurch_kids for creating a memorable night! Monster Bars! Super quick and easy dessert. Personally, I think they taste best in a bowl with vanilla ice cream. 😜 Recipe is on the blog!
#monsterbars #chocolatedessert #oatmeal Wednesday is the 100th day of school, so Grace is working on counting out 100 things. I think I am going to run out of tape before she gets to 100. 😳 #100daysofschool #school Writing letters to the kids they sponsor through Africa New Life. 💞#riverwestchurch #africanewlife Went out to get bubble tea and the kids were almost more excited to play in the balls than to drink boba! #funwithkids Making Cranberry Orange Bread with my favorite little man! @glorioustreats —I love your recipe!!! Sorting through the fresh cranberries to find the plump ones was a job Matthew was up to. 😜 #baking #bakersofinstagram #cranberries #cranberryorangebread #bakingwithkids
