I'd give this recipe five stars if it did not get soggy so quickly. However, this is a great recipe. I do not drink alcohol, so I always use a bit of orange juice or a bit of berry syrup (Smucker's makes one I believe) instead. I have discovered that the oj or berry syrup maximizes the flavor of the berries, whipped cream, and custard. I would recommend starting with just a little oj or berry syrup on top of the pound cake, as the cake got soggy for me the next day (and that was when I did not even put a lot of it on). This is a great crowd pleaser, but I would be hesitant about making it a day ahead - you might have a watery, gooey, mess. I will say that if you put it in the refrigerator for four to six hours after you are done assembling it, it looks and tastes divine (that is the best time to serve it for sure). This is one of my favorite desserts to serve at parties! It is a huge crowd pleaser (and it serves a TON of people too, so that's even better. ;) less work for me!).
