Refreshing Cake with Lemon Sauce completes the delightful dinner. "This is a family favorite on hot summer nights," notes Claire Dion from Canterbury, Connecticut.
Cream cheese, milk and pudding mix are all that's needed for the sunny sauce drizzled over prepared pound cake and topped with a few berries.

This pretty layered torte from Joan Causey of Greenwood, Arkansas relies on convenient frozen pound cake and canned pie filling. "It's a snap to assemble," she promises. "I put toothpicks through the ends to hold the layers in place, then remove them before serving."
