This poundcake is a patriotic picnic favorite! This dessert has it all: it’s the perfect mix of delectable, sweet, and beautiful. It’s simple to make and very versatile. Personally, I like to conclude barbecues and picnics with it. It’s the perfect complement to a healthy meal. It especially pairs well with fireworks!
