I am responsible for dessert for my friends 40th – dinner party for 30. I proposed creme frache ice cream with home-preserved peaches and spiced candied pecans, and lemon cornmeal cake with blueberry sauce (also from my home preserves). Got the green light for the sundaes, but not the cake. She wants something that's going to look great on a cake stand (the cormeal cake it too rustic). Any ideas of something I can work into my ice cream presentation for service? Or simply something great and not too incongruous?
