I've been craving a delicious treat, so I decided to make my friend's cream cheese pound cake, because it has all the deliciousness you could ask for: cream cheese, cake, yumminess. Also, this freezes and travels well, in case you need to take it to your in-laws for Easter. I'd make two, in case you need to pregame and eat some on the way. I am not one to judge.
