3-12 ounce pound cakes, 2 tubs-8 ounces Cool Whip, Assorted Candy for jewels, 3 pretzel rods cut to hold chest open, regular pretzels for chest handles
You can use any pound cake, I found mine at Sams Club. Cut a 1/2 inch slice off the top of the cake & set aside (this is the top of chest). Hollow out a little of the center of the cake to make room for cool whip & jewels. Spoon cool whip into center of cake and frost rest of cake. Add pretzel handles. Add broken pretzel rods to hold up chest lid. Place cake lid on top of pretzels & frost. After I hollowed out my cake I put it in the freezer for a little while so it was easier to frost and add the jewels. After you decorate your cake leave in fridge or freezer until ready to serve. I had mine in the freezer because it was summer time.
