I love pound cake and I enjoy not only the homemade version but, also various different store bought brands and flavors of this sweet treat. Recently, I came across Capitol Golden Pound Cake in the baked goods section of my local Dollar Tree store. I decided to purchase it, try it out and write an unbiased product review about my experience. Here is what I discovered!
I purchased a ten ounce Capitol Golden Pound Cake for only one dollar. I was amazed and quite intrigued by that very low price. This pound cake is packed inside of a box with a see through top so I could see how good this pound cake looked! It is wrapped for freshness. I was not familiar with the Capitol brand but, at one dollar, I was more than willing to try them.
When I tasted this pound cake, I was very impressed. It is absolutely delicious. Very moist and it has a home baked flavor. This pound cake is high in quality yet, low in price. It does have a lemon flavor so, do be aware of that. I like lemon flavored cakes and I did not mind that part at all. A relative of mine tried this pound cake with me and she loved it. Since she is picky about cakes, I knew that this product was a winner. I rate Capitol Golden Pound Cake four and one half stars out of five stars. I will be buying it again and I plan on trying other flavors of this pound cake. Strawberry swirl, marble, lemon and many other flavor choices are offered by this company. Fantastic!
I was very curious about this company and I visited the capitolcake.com web site to learn a bit more about the Capitol cake company. It is third generation family owned and operated. They are located in Baltimore, Maryland. I discovered that not only do they sell pound cakes, they also sell fruit cakes as well! In fact, the Capitol cake company “Shirley Jean fruit cake” has been onboard every space shuttle mission over the Christmas holidays since 1994. Wow! They have a clever phone number for more information about their products. It is 1-800-EAT-CAKE. I liked that. Very cute. Their motto “Our fruit cake is out of this world” really is true, I see. Far out!

Calcium, iron, riboflavin, thiamin and niacin are also in this pound cake. I loved this product. It is so tasty and very affordable. One pound cake has four servings but, I actually got six servings out of mine. This pound cake goes wonderfully with coffee. I also like to serve it with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream. I only have to add strawberries to make it a delicious dessert. It saves me money and time spent in the kitchen. I highly recommend trying this pound cake. It is sold at Dollar General stores and many other places.
I enjoyed trying Capitol Golden Pound Cake and writing a product review about it. The Capitol cake company has been around since 1922 and I can see why! Trying this cake made me want to try more of their products, that for sure. This pound cake exceeded my expectations. It is a dessert winner!
