# pound cakes — Tasting Friday, 5-6 p.m., at Miss Cordelia's

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 1:54 PM

I've mentioned before that I'm a sucker for packaging, so I was all over # pound cakes, which I picked up last week at Miss Cordelia's.

It was like opening a present ...




# pound cakes founder Judy Douglass started baking cakes and selling them to friends several years ago when she was a stay-at-home mom. She says both her grandmother and mother were excellent cooks. "If there's a cooking gene," she says, "I must have it."

Her friends, the folks behind Tom's Tiny Kitchen Pimento Cheese, suggested she get her cakes into High Point Grocery and Miss Cordelia's. # pound cakes have been at High Point since February; they made their debut at Miss Cordelia's 2 weeks ago.


I bought the apricot-almond cake (above). The cake itself is richly moist, the caramelizing of the apricots a crowning touch. The other flavors include: blackberry-almond; cinnamon-pecan; raspberry-almond; and peach-cinnamon.

The 6-inch cakes, sold at High Point and Miss Cordelia's, are $14.99. Douglass also sells each flavor in full-size 18-inch cakes for $35 (contact her at for more information).

I spoke to Douglass just as she was packing up cakes for today's tasting at Miss Cordelia's. She had just finished up an order for some 2 dozen small cakes and five bigs one to send across state.

Says Douglass, "I love to bake. I love to bake."

There will be a # pound cakes tasting today, Friday, May 3rd, from 5 to 6 p.m., at Miss Cordelia's.
