I made this yesterday for my husband's birthday and he loved it. Even though I cheated and used a pound cake mix, I still used this frosting recipe, cutting the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups. The frosting was wonderful and would be great on any type of cake.

Absolutely large, dense beautiful pound cake. I, also used butter flavored shortening. Other adjustments included increasing cherries to 1 1/4 c., substituting 1 1/2 t. vanilla and 1 t. almond extract in place of butternut extract. Since I wanted to display this cake I did not make the frosting. Will definately make again, although frosting would certainly be yummy it truly is not necessary. Watch cooking time, outside was tiny bit dry but everyone raved about taste, beauty and size.
