Preparation: First, cut each pound cake slices into 8-9 slices; wash and slice strawberries (anyway you like it), reserve some for garnish. Dilute jam with a little water to make it spreadable. Prepare a simple syrup mixture, I always use 2:1 ratio; like 1/2 cup syrup mix with 1/4 rum (replace with water to make it kid-friendly). Whip the cream into stiff peaks use a hand/stand mixer or do it by hand, your arm will get a nice work-out :)..
To assemble: In a glass bowl, put a smear of whipped cream at the bottom, then put a layer of pound cake slices, drizzle or brush with syrup, spread some strawberry jam and a third of strawberries, cover with a layer of whipped cream; repeat the process until all your ingredients are used up. Arrange the reserved strawberries on top any way you like it..that’s it! Put the whole thing in the fridge until it is ready to serve. Yummy!
* to make a simple syrup, just combine an equal amount of sugar and water in a pot to boil for about 3 minutes. Turn off heat; cool and transfer into a jar, this will keep indefinitely in the fridge.
