This sounds like you are talking about a pyramid. Pyramids in Geometry are not restricted to the square pyramids you may be used to seeing in pictures of from Egypt. Pyramids are named after the type of polygon that make up their base. In Egypt, since the bases of those pyramids are squares, they are known as square pyramids. If you had a pyramid with a pentagon for a base, then it would be a pentagonal pyramid. Pyramids always have triangles for sides that meet at a common point at the top which is known as the apex.

Both pyramids and prisms are three dimensional. Both of them have polygon faces. Another thing common about pyramids and prisms is that they have a base and faces.

Pyrimids of Giza in Egypt The Egyptian pyramids are fine examples of square based pyramids.

pyramids are prisms. * * * * * Pyramids are not prisms nor are prisms pyramids. A pyramid has one polygonal base. Each side of that polygon is connected to a triangle, whose third vertices meet at a point above the base of the pyramid. A prism has two congruent polygonal bases that are parallel to one another. They are joined together by rectangles.

They are both polyhedra.

because macaroons are macaroons and pyramids are pyramids.

There are various types of pyramids, including regular pyramids (with a regular polygon as the base and congruent isosceles triangles as the faces), right pyramids (with the apex directly above the center of the base), and oblique pyramids (where the apex is not directly above the center of the base). Pyramids can also be classified based on the shape of their base, such as square pyramids, triangular pyramids, pentagonal pyramids, etc.
