Our family loves cherries, so this cake is the perfect way to end any meal. The combination of sweet cherries and lemon peel gives the yellow cake a distinctive flavor, and no one can resist the yummy cream cheese topping.

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
I love the tart cranberry flavor of this cheery cake. Served with a warm citrus sauce, it makes a wonderful treat to share at get-togethers with family and friends. —Shirley Dehler of Columbus, Wisconsin
Tired of plain ol' cakes? Give this recipe a shot! Cranberry-lovers will definitely like it because the cake is tart, but the warm butter sauce creates the ideal balance of sweet and sour. Pour the sauce over the cake just before serving.—Katie Kahre, Duluth, Minnesota
For old-fashioned appeal at Christmastime, try this moist cake baked in a loaf pan and dotted with chopped dates and walnuts. The recipe includes a homemade vanilla sauce.—Nancy Foust, Stoneboro, Pennsylvania
“After a satisfying meal, I like to go with something light for dessert. This recipe combines two of our favorite flavors, coffee and chocolate, in a scrumptious cream that’s served alongside a slice of angel food cake. Yum.” —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona
