I have done things like this before, but instead of the cream cheese I use pudding. There was a time when I had made a chocolate pound cake and since no one in my house was eating it except me it sat for a little to long. On the 5th day I was starting to think That I'll either use it or loose it, so I made a dessert that evening that involved layers of the crumbled pound cake, mini chocolate chips, and chocolate pudding that I had lightened with cool whip. It really was good, and stopped me from having to be wasteful. Thanks for posting! :)
