Key Lime Pound Cake Trifles are a great way to use leftover pound cake.

I serve these little bits of Heaven in individual punch glasses.

But, you could always make one large trifle.

You can modify this dessert to work for any flavor pound cake.

I made these desserts using my homemade Key Lime Pound Cake.
