plantain pie? plantain cake? a cake-shaped pile of platanos maduros?

my boyfriend's birthday is coming up. his very favorite food in the world is platanos maduros - the decadent, soft, sweet kind of fried plantains - and i plan to serve them at the party that i'm making for him. i could just offer up a dessert platter of plantains and vice cream, but i thought this would be a good opportunity to be creative. he was saying last night how cool it would be to eat plantain pie, and i've been googling with little luck; there are plantain pies out there, but they aren't very desserty, plus they contain meat and dairy.

so have any of you wonderful creative cooks ever tried something like this, or have you any ideas? thanks in advance for your help ♥
