For the last day of Ice Cream Week I wanted to try something new. A couple months ago I tried making baked Alaska and failed miserably…kinda ended up with cake and a pool of cream and eggs. This time I changed up the steps a bit and ended up with a super tasty dessert. For those who don’t know, baked Alaska is a dessert that’s composed of cake and ice cream, encased in baked meringue. Thing of note, to make this recipe you’ll need a torch. I’ve tried using the oven before and that does not work well.

I used a store bought gluten free cake and ice cream, then added fresh fruit and meringue for a wonderful treat. Hope you enjoy! We would like to thank you all our readers for joining in the indulgence this week. Ice cream is always best eaten with friends.

Kim and Susan would like to thank all the participants and sponsors for joining in the fun. It’s take a village to make this much ice cream! See you all next year for Ice Cream Week 2015. Be sure to stay tuned for news about Cookie Week in November and Christmas Week in December. Susan and Kim are always up for fun and food. Chow!

    T.R.,
    Seeing this makes me really crave a torch! Must add it to the Christmas list.I already have the propane (just need the propane accessories) since we used to use a torch-sized canister for our grill. (Hard to actually cook meat without running out of fuel, you know?) Now I’m set up with a real tank, leaving my canisters with nothing to do.
    Until now. And this Baked Alaska.
    Looks delicious!

    I love baked alaska but it’s tricky to make. Totally worth the effort though. I love this, and am thrilled you found a way to do GF. I’m also thrilled you joined us this week. It’s been an absolute pleasure having you.
