This vintage cake plate is one of the things in my kitchen that always makes me smile! I bought it at the base thrift shop when we were stationed at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia. What a find!
I just love it!
And this is one of my favorite things to put IN the cake plate: Southern Living’s Sweet Potato Pound Cake! I do love pound cake! I always liked pound cake when I was a kid because it didn’t have icing on it. I have since learned to like icing on cakes, but I still love a good pound cake! And this is one of the best ones I’ve ever made.
I’ve discovered that you can use a 29 ounce can of sweet potatoes, drain it, mash the potatoes, and that will give you just about the 2 1/2 cups of sweet potato you need for the recipe. Or if you use the 40 ounce can, you’ll have the full 2 1/2 cups and a little left over.
