Black-and-White Baked Alaska - Tuesdays with Dorie

Another of the "Fancy Cakes" from Baking Chez Moi was chosen this month, a marvel of cake, ice cream and baked meringue.
The cake layer was fabulously chocolatey and decadent and the ice cream of choice was the family favourite, cookies 'n' cream. Poor planning meant that I was making the meringue on a very hot and humid day. Though I wasn't able to achieve the proper volume and stiff peaks, it still baked up to be a gooey marshmallow layer with a crisp outer shell.

Everyone so enjoyed it, I'll have to try it again when the weather is more cooperative.

Visit here to see what everyone else made.


  1. This looks delectable! I can't wait to make it!

  2. Looks sooooo good! I can't wait to try this and it's finally cool here in Sydney Australia so humidity will not be an issue for a change :)

  3. I am making this for the weekend and I am looking forward to it. Glad it was a hit with your family.

  4. Glad they all enjoyed it. Baked Alaska is delish and I look forward to making it.
