Are Janie's Pound Cakes Worth the Dough?

MPH | Nov 19, 200708:47 PM     16

I just noticed a display of these today while I was fighting the crowds at the downtown Whole Foods. Apparently, the baker is based in Tyler (http://www.janiescakes.com/cakes.htm ). It's easy enough for me to just bake a pound cake, so I balked at the fact that these cost at least $24.99 each. They'd need to be pretty darn amazing—not just competent or moist or pretty good—before I'd purchase one at those prices. Are they?

I'd love to hear from 'hounds who can objectively comment on their experiences with this product.
