"My mother made an 'Ice Box Dessert' back in the '50s that was delicious. All I can remember is whipped cream, angel food cake broken up into generous pieces and chocolate fudge topping. It was served after being chilled in the refrigerator. Does anyone remember anything like this?"
K.B., of Ketchikan
