Quality Checking a French Pun

Hello everyone!

I'm trying to work a French pun into one of my stories, but not being a French speaker myself I wanted to run this by our Francophones first.

A café liégeois is a coffee ice cream dessert named after the city Liége, while a liège (note the accent on the "e" facing the other direction) is a cork. Thus, would a café liègeois imply a coffee-flavored dessert made of cork? Granted, it's just a pun and not supposed to make much sense, but to a native French speaker, does this come off as a pun or just gibberish?

Merci beaucoup!
