Slice the loaf of pound cake into 1/4 inch width whole pieces or slices. Place one even layer of the cake slices on top of plastic lining. Position slices so they make a uniform base around the bowl. Cut whole slices into smaller pieces to fill openings between the larger slices that need to be filled with pound cake so the bowl is completed covered and layered with pound cake.

"This meringue is outstanding, and easy to handle. I made the syrup a little ahead of time so it was warm but not hot. Used Sarah Lee pound cake and Ben and Jerrys Cherry Garcia for the ice cream. It was unbelievably delicious."
