National Pound Cake Day & Easy Tiramisu Parfait Recipe

Today is National Pound Cake Day and I’m pretty excited. Pound cake is on the top of the list when it comes to my favorite types of cake. Just don’t ask me to bake one. When a pound cake craving hits I avoid the kitchen and head straight to the freezer section at the grocery store for a Sara Lee butter pound cake. They’re the perfect size and always have a smooth texture that’s perfect for dipping in fondue, smothering in strawberries or in this case, layering in a parfait.

These Tiramisu parfait dessert cups are so easy to throw together and since they’re semi-homemade, you can take all the credit for this fantastic looking treat.
