      Thank you for sharing your YUMMYLICIOUS hub. I think I will try all the flavors in one cake because I love lemons, blackberry, yoghurt and honey. Wonder how that would taste? Mmmm... I am voting all the way up and running to my kitchen now to try the all-in-one poundcake and if i succeed i will name it Summerstuff's Poundcake.
