Step 1: Method
4 tbsp Maxwell instant coffee
2-3 tbsp margarine

3-4 tbsp sugar
1 small container whipped topping (I used No Name), thawed
a drop of cocopandan extract (can be bought in Asian/Chinese store or Amazone. You can use cocopandan syrup as shown on picture should extract isn't available)
slices of pound cake (either homemade, recipe included, or store bought, if it's frozen, thaw first)

In a separate bowl, dissolve coffee in hot water and add rum extract plus sugar.
Pour coffee mixture over the pound cake crumbs, moist and blend well. Add margarine, add well.
Press moistened crumbs onto pie baking pan, bottom up
Bake in a 350 F for 30 minutes, cool on a rack
Mix thawed whipped cream/whipped topping with cocopandan extract, pour onto cooled cake

Homemade Pound Cake (as shown on picture)
1 pound butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy (until lighter yellow). Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy (until butter is white). Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow yolk disappears. Add flour to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Batter should be smooth. Stir in extracts. Pour into a greased and floured pan (can be as shown, can be 10 inch tube pan, can be loaf pan too). Bake at 300° for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.
