Y10 Baked Alaska

Year 10 this week have been making Baked Alaska and continuing their favourite task of plating up their dishes restaurant style?

So what is a Baked Alaska?

Baked Alaska is a cake and ice cream dessert topped with caramelised meringue. Pupils used a kitchen blow torch to caramelise the meringue rather than baking it. So how does the ice cream not melt? The meringue insulates it from the heat.
