Any ideas for a tropical plated dessert(s) and flavors?

I have a baking final coming up soon (college) and we have to make a fancy plated dessert(s) (and other components if we like). I want to use tropical flavors (mango, lime, passionfruit, etc), but I just dont know what dessert to choose. I'm trying to challenge myself, but at the same time not get in over my head...any ideas? (I have no professional experience, but I can bake pretty well) I basically have 2 days, (5 hours each day) to make the dessert then the chef grades it. I'm freaking out honestly.

Taking from the first season of the Great British Baking Show that I saw: Baked Alaska with tropical flavored ice cream/sherbet/sorbet.

If you want something simple yet delicious I would suggest making a tres leches but swapping out the unsweetened evaporated milk for coconut milk and topping the tres leches cake with a layer of dulce de leche and shaved toasted coconut on top of the whipped cream and serving a tropical fruit salad (mango, papaya, passion fruit etc.) on the side. I have yet to meet anyone who does not like tres leches cake!
