Pound cake with too brown crust! What to do??

Made a pound cake (in a bundt pan) for a party tonight at a friend's house, but I baked it too long and the crust is too brown. Any suggestions what I should do?

I don't think it's ruined (it's russet-potato or hot chocolate brown)... and maybe the fresh fruit compote I am planning to serve with it will help.

Would brushing it with a sugar/liqueur syrup help or just turn the crust into a harder, cruchier shell?

Thanks!!
