serving MCs on a platter like a baked alaskan
he Baked Alaska experiment was a success. It wasn't perfect, but hey, it was my first time.

It's actually rather simple. Here's what I did. First I made the cake. I just used a box cake recipe, in this case it was a red velvet cake. I also got a quart of ice cream. I chose Black Raspberry Chocolate Chunk.

I baked the cake in a bread pan. After it had cooled, I removed it from the pan and cut the rounded part off the top so I had a flat surface on both sides. After cleaning the bread pan, I lined it with plastic wrap and packed the ice cream into it. I put my cake on top of the ice cream, covered the whole thing and put it in the freezer for about 6-8 hours.

When I was ready to make it, I set the oven to pre-heat to 500 degrees. I made some meringue (I used 5 eggs) while the oven was heating. I took the ice cream/cake combo from the freezer and inverted it onto a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil (cake-side down, ice cream up). I peeled the plastic wrap from the ice cream and coated the entire thing in meringue.

Then I stuck it in the oven for 3 minutes.

Mmmmmmm MM.

Yeah, there was talk of getting a Kroger here- they were thinking of buying Albertson's. Sadly, no dice. You can bet I'll hit the Kroger in Alexandria next time I'm through though, even if it's just get some to eat in the car.
