Strawberry Pound Cake Ice Cream Cups Recipe #PoundCakeDay

It has been negative-a-bazillion-degrees here in Ohio this winter. School was in session for less than 10 days in January. I have exhausted all the enthusiasm I can muster up for sledding, snow angels, and snowmen building. The positively frigid temperatures have trapped us in our homes, those of us who are weak, that is.

My husband works outside in this insanity. If it weren’t for him I would be complaining much louder about this weather, but I can’t justify my whining from under my electric blanket and send him on his way.

Can I use fresh whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping?

Use fresh whipped cream or Cool Whip topping right before serving.

Here is my recipe tutorial for a small batch of fresh sweetened whipped cream video.
