Grilled Angel Cake with Drunken Peaches and honey cream

let me start by saying the omni REALLY wants to try this again, but do somethings different.

Now a teaser
Mini Angel Cakes or slices
About 3 peaches, sliced
2 Tbs Amaretto
2 Tsp butter
1 1/2 Tbs Honey ( we're lucky and my in-laws have bees to make it!)
1/4 cup sour cream

Place sliced peaches in foil packets, cover with butter, amaretto and cinnamon to taste. close packets and grill 6-8 minutes.
grill angel cake approx 1-2 minutes per side.
mix honey and cream in a bowl.
Top cakes with peaches and cream, and drizzle with amaretto sauce (from the bottom of the foil packet.

Presentation was an A. Both my omni and our dinner guest approved, that said: as we made them they were "okay" here is what we didn't like, I thought the peaches were bitter, and the cakes tasted a bit like burger.. or grill or something.

Next time I plan to do this:

Coat the peaches with a bit of honey and grill.
Skip grilling the cakes.
Make a whipped cream topping and mix in cinnamon For a cinnamon whip topping.

Both said they wanted to try it again, so there we go, it WAS edible and they clearly saw the light at the end of the .. cake
