    You up to doing some molecular gastronomy stuff?

    A small sphere of cream or creamy something might work well in your dish. In one of my books they sphereify cream for a 'modernist burrata'. You can pretty much cut and paste the technique to what you're doing.

    How are you presenting the soup (espresso cup on a plate w/fritters? shooter glass? wide bowl?) and fritters (on a stick?)   You could do a caramelized wedge of fruit like pineapple or mango.  If you're still playing with the idea of the fritter, try a sauteed crouton of a sweet bread like banana bread and a side of goat cheese ice cream or the spherical cream from above (or even a marshmallow); maybe a drip of a balsamic syrup ....
