Mosaic Baked Alaska, Part I - The Ice Cream Dome
I made the mistake of asking: what kind of cake should we make for Nonna's birthday? I should have stuck with my cardinal rule of giving the boys two choices, both of which did not require me to go to the store. Ugh.
A Baked Alaska is a dessert made with a sponge cake base, a dome of ice cream, and a layer of meringue that is baked just long enough to set the meringue without melting the ice cream.
