Easy Valentine's Day Cake Recipe

1 store-bought pound cake
1 pint raspberries or chopped strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chilled whipping cream

Slice pound cake into 4 (1-inch) slices. With a medium-sized heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts from each slice of pound cake. Set aside.

In a medium bowl combine 1/2 the raspberries and the sugar. Crush berries with a fork. Add remaining raspberries to the bowl. Add the lemon juice and mix well. Whip chilled cream until the soft peak stage.

Using 2 dessert plates, place 1 heart on each plate. Pour 3/4 of the raspberry mixture over each cake. Cover cakes with another pound cake heart. Top with whipped cream and remaining raspberry mixture.
