Guided loft to vertex for "organic" shapes

I've been asked to make a simple 3D version of this logo:

The crown is easy enough, sketch and extrude, but the ice cream shape is giving me trouble.

I've tried to make the three parts separate, and start with the middle one. This is how I'm thinking:
- a base somewhere hidden in the crown
- two front lines following the logo (flat in a sketch)
- a profile line (free shape)
- projected curves between each front line and the profile line, to build guides for a loft.
- a loft between base and tip, with the projected curves as guides.

This doesn't work well:

I often have this kind of troubles with guided lofts, it feels like there's something I'm getting wrong.

What is wrong with this? What approach would you take?
