Yield:
8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • Zest of 2 limes, plus zest of 1 lime for garnish
  • 2 frozen prepared pound cakes
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 pounds strawberries, 8 sliced and reserved for garnish, remaining cut into small dice
Directions
  • Whip the cream in a bowl using a whisk or hand mixer. Just before soft peaks are formed, add the confectioners' sugar and lime zest. Whip to soft peaks.

  • Remove the pound cakes from the freezer and cut each in half vertically with a serrated knife. Then cut each of the halves horizontally. Cut rounds out of each block of cake using a 3-inch cutter. Then cut each round in half horizontally, so you're left with 16 equal-sized rounds.

  • For building the cakes: Set a round of pound cake down, pour over some sweetened condensed milk, layer on some diced strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream. Top with another layer of cake and garnish with a sliced strawberry fanned out on top and some lime zest sprinkled over. Repeat for the remaining cakes.
