Mosaic Baked Alaska, Part III - The Construction

So, I dropped off all the parts of the Baked Alaska and had Nonna put it all together after school. Instead of a choose-your-own-adventure (do you remember those books?), this was a make-your-own-birthday-cake. It was delicious! Great job and happy 61st birthday, Nonna.

The Meringue...
8 egg whites

1/8 t cream of tartar
1/8 t salt
1 C granulated sugar

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar, salt and sugar until stiff peaks form.

Line a baking sheet with parchment or heavy brown paper. Place cake in center. Turn molded ice cream out onto cake. Quickly and prettily spread meringue over cake and ice cream, all the way to paper to seal. Return to freezer.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake the Alaska on the lowest shelf, 8 to 10 minutes, or until meringue is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
