Would you share how you did the canned frosting? I live several hours away from my father who is 76 years old and doesn't bake deserts for himself anymore. For many years I have made pound cake in small jars and make several cases at a time and take to him. I use small 1/2 pint regular mouth canning jars and that makes enough for one portion of cake. Then when they are all gone, I go pick up the jars and bring them home and buy new seals and start all over. He loves having homemade cake available and pound cake was always our family favorite
I would love to know about the canned frosting so that I could send some with the cake and he could have the cake plain or with the frosting - depending on what he wanted at that particular moment.
