A plain purchased pound cake's at the heart of the elegant-looking dessert. I've used angel food cake, cupcakes, doughnuts and even a stack of cookies as the base in place of the pound cake. Top it off with a fun selection of sundae makings—nuts, orange rinds, cherries, etc.—Nova MacIssac, Souris, Prince Edward Island
