ADoes anyone do this? I want to use a box mix and I know that pound cake is pretty firm, but is it a no-no to do pound cake in round pans, torte and fill?

AI'm not sure why that would be, but I do it fairly often

AI do it all the time but from scratch. I just use something light as the filling because it's a dense filling cake, but I get lots of requests for it, usually lemon pound with a lemon filling

Pound Cake in a layer cake is something that I've done also.  This is why I altered the pound cake recipe from my Betty Crocker Cookbook just slightly to lighten it up a touch.  Pound cake is so delicious.

APerfect. That makes me feel a lot better about using it. Thanks!

AI always do pound cakes as layer cakes, especially weddings. Just be sure to use some sort of heating core to ensure it cooks evenly. I use rose nails to accomplish this and have never had an issue, even in 16" round pans

AGeorgia, yes- I also use flower nails, but only in my larger pans. Do u think I'd need them in 5" and 9"?

ANot the 5" and possibly not even the 9", I use one in my 8" pans, doesn't mean its necessary though, it just makes me feel better :)

AYeah I was debating on the 9", too, but since it's a 3" deep pan I may do it...
