She didn't. I found this pound cake to be more and more delicious by each passing day. On the third or fourth day it was absolutely scrumptious served with a bowl of fresh strawberries and whipped cream. If you can manage to have a bit of patience, let it sit for a day or two, at least after initially trying a slice. It just gets better and better.
