Here's a delightful dessert that only looks as if you fussed all day. With its attractive appearance and wonderful taste, no one will know that you saved time by spreading an easy-to-prepare frosting on a store-bought pound cake. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen


  • 1 frozen pound cake (10-3/4 ounces), thawed
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 6 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
