This is another recipe that's not really a recipe. 

Here's what you'll need:

1- Purchased Pound Cake
Any of your favorite Fresh Summer Berries. (Sliced Strawberries, Blue Berries, Blackberries, Raspberries) A mix of each.
1 Recipe of my Pastry Cream, recipe to follow.

Slice the Pound Cake into horizontal layers.
Transfer the first slice to a serving platter.
Top it with some of the Pastry Cream and then some of each of the Berries.
Continue Layering the Cake ending with a slice of Pound Cake.
Spread some of the Cool Whip on the top.
