Pieces of storebought angel food cake or sponge cake or lady fingers

About 2 cups double or triple strength coffee mixed with rum or other liqueur of choice

Sweetened Whipped cream mixed with sugar or chopped nuts or powdered sugar


  1. This recipe is more a "strategy" than a real recipe. The idea is to quickly soak the cake or lady fingers in coffee and set a layer in a 8-inch square glass baking pan. Cover with a layer of whipped cream flavored to taste, layer soaked cake, then whipped cream; do two layers at least
  2. Refrigerate, covered overnight.
  3. VARIATIONS: If you like this idea with fruit, then soak cake in diluted liqueur, then sandwich cream and fruit in between.
