My oven is broken-- what can I "bake" for a work luncheon?

My oven is not working (hopefully will be fixed soon, but not before the party!) and I'm looking to take on the challenge of making dessert without it. What treat can I make without the use of an oven for a work party honoring someone special? No Jello or anything like that.
Any ideas would be much appreciated. :) If I can't figure it out, I'll buy something, but I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas!
ETA: Stovetop is working.
A sweet crepe torte? Layered crepes with fillings ranging from Nutella to apricot jam to seedless raspberry jam to dulce de leche to lemon curd to...
Really tall ones are impressive, but I'd make several of shorter stacks, each with a different filling, so slicing isn't so intimidating. Powdered sugar on top, fresh berries around, maybe a fruit sauce on the side in a boat with a ladle. Lemon curd and blueberry sauce = perfect match.
any type of candy (if your stove top still works)
I like the idea of chocolate dipped strawberries, you could even dip them and then add nuts or candies on top of them, make them a little more decadent
You could make a fruit or dessert trifle
