This was a family favorite in Nana’s house.

1 day old sponge or angel food cake (not chocolate), cut into three layers
enough fresh bananas or frozen or fresh strawberries to completely cover each layer of cake
enough ice cream for same

On top of the bottom layer of cake, put enough fresh fruit to cover it. On top of the fruit put a layer of ice cream. Put the second layer of cake on top of that and layer it with fruit and ice cream. For the top layer you can do the same, or leave the top cake layer as is. Do all of this quickly because the ice cream will be melting. If you used strawberries, you can put the cake into the freezer until you are ready to eat it. Top with whipped cream or dairy cream.
