I made the delicious sounding Pear Cake for my department (work) staff pot luck holiday luncheon, which is today.

I peeled too many pears and ended up making pear sauce (like apple sauce)- would that be called compote? I thought about serving that on the side.

Now, my question is: Should I serve it warm, cold or at room temp?

I was thinking about going hog wild and serving it warm with vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce.

If I do serve it warm, how long should it be reheated?
In the oven? At what temp?

Suggestions?
Thanks so much in advance!
