Leave a where's the recipe...

After looking at the ingredients list I would assume that this is a very rich and decadent cake. The cream cheese must really help to keep it moist. We love caramel in our house. I will have to give this recipe a try soon. If I cant find Werthers baking caramels, will any caramels work?

Caramel is my secret weakness, this looks absolutely perfect. I would definitely try it.

I'm drooling. This pound cake looks incredible! The caramel would add the perfect amount of sweetness.
