Baked Alaska

Making Baked Alaska
a step-by-step effort, and i helped!

I’ve been wanting to post up this fiery delight my aunt made for CNY. I’ve never tried making it myself but watching her do it makes it seem so easy. Well I think it is easy, but you just need to be quick. It’s so cool, how the meringue manages to insulate the ice cream and all.

Anyway, here’s a picture of the baked alaska on fire:

Bomb Alaska

Cool eh? It was HUGE too I tell ya! She poured whiskey over it and lighted the entire ‘igloo’. The kids (my cousins) were so excited and intrigued. What a perfect sweet highlight to end a meal. I’m so gonna try it out myself soon…
