Frozen raspberry layer cake
(Family Features)

Ingredients:
2  10 3/4-ounce frozen pound cakes, crusts removed, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices
3  cups vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
4  cups raspberry sorbet, slightly softened
1  pint fresh raspberries, rinsed and picked over
3  tablespoons Chambord, or other raspberry-flavored
 liqueur

Directions:
Prep Time: 20 minutes (not counting freezing times)
Total Freezing Time: 4 hours+

Prepare the pan: Trace and cut out a 9-inch circle from parchment paper and fit it into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Cut out a 3- by 27-inch strip of parchment and fit around inside of pan. Tape to secure parchment paper and set aside.

Assemble the cake: Cover bottom of pan with a single layer of pound cake slices and spread ice cream evenly over cake. Freeze until ice cream hardens - about 25 minutes.
