  1. Pit the cherries, and place them in a stainless steel saucepan with the wine and sugar.

  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, uncovered, over medium heat, and cook for 5 minutes to reduce the juices.

  3. Cool. (There should be 2¼ cups.)

  4. Trim off the brown sides of the pound cake, reserving the trimmings.

  5. Cut the trimmed cake lengthwise into 5 slices, each about ½-inch thick.

  6. Place a strip of parchment paper in a 4- to 6-cup bowl so that the paper covers the bottom and comes up the sides of the bowl. (This will help in the unmolding later.)

  7. Arrange 3 slices of the cake on top of the parchment so that the cake covers the bottom and sides of the bowl.

  8. Place ½ the cherry mixture on top of the cake and crumble ½ of the reserved cake trimmings over the cherries.

  9. Spoon the remaining cherry mixture on top and crumble the remaining cake trimmings over it.

  10. Finish with the remaining 2 slices of cake, arranging them so that all the cherries are covered.

  11. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap touching the cake.

  12. Place a weight of about 1 pound on top of the dessert so it presses and compacts the layers of cake and cherries.

  13. Refrigerate.

Rum Sauce:

  1. Peel the mango, and cut the flesh from the pit.

  2. Place the flesh in a food processor or blender with honey, rum, and water, and process until smooth. (There should be 1¾ cups.)

  3. When ready to serve, unmold the cake onto a serving plate, pour the mango sauce around it, and sprinkle with the grapes.

  4. Spoon onto dessert dishes at the table.
