What's for dessert?

Now isn't this just a pickle. I, the baking queen of Mamaw's Place, am stumped on what to fix for dessert for my 31 Party on Saturday. I could use some ideas. Here is the menu....

Homemade Barbecue Chicken Sliders
Homemade Cole Slaw
Homemade Baked Beans
Potato Chips & Dip
Lemonade and Ice Tea

I was going to cheat and get a Lemon Pudding Pound Cake from Kroger's, but that just doesn't sound like me. I have cookbooks from Betty Crocker, Pillsbury,  churches, fire department, Home Interior, Pampered Chef, Hershey's, Crisco, Eagle Brand and tons of miscellaneous one accumulated over the years. I have a recipe book full of dessert recipes passed down from generation to generation. I have five new aprons to choose from when I begin to bake .... and I'm drawing a blank. I think I'm just overwhelmed. I am the one who thinks a really good dessert is one you make yourself....even if it is semi-homemade with part of it being boxed. But I normally would never consider serving guests a store bought cake...unless it's a birthday.
I'm just at a loss of what dessert would go good with our menu. I might add the party is at 11:00 so it will be a luncheon menu. My lovely ladies, I would appreciate your opinions on what would go good with this.

On another note......
On Tuesday, I held a little giveaway of homemade apple butter. The plan was to draw 3 winners and each would receive a jar of apple butter. We only had 5 ask to enter so the lucky winners were....

ALL 5 OF YOU! I decided there was no way I could giveaway 3 jars and let 2 people "go home" empty handed. I will email you or if you see this, I need your shipping address so I can send you your jar! Congratulations to:

How about the chocolate sundae cake I told you about? Chocolate cake mix. Punch holes in cake right out of the oven. Pour on a bottle of Hershey's chocolate syrup. The whole bottle. Chill in fridge until cold. Take cake from fridge and cover with cool whip then cover with chopped pecans and then top it off with marichino cherries. Delicious!! I hope you have a great party! Enjoy!
