Flaming " Baked Alaska "

Today’s assignment is for a disappearing Dessert :  the “Baked Alaska”
I want five groups of four, Sous Chef, Saucier, Garde-Manger, and Cook.
The recipe is in front of You. You have an hour and fifty-eight minutes
Each cook in the group has to watch each phase of the recipe.
Sous Chefs, You are to make an orange-lemon Sponge Cake.
Garde-Manger, will make a vanilla- chocolate Ice Cream.
Cooks are responsible for an egg wash and the Meringue.
The Sauciers will make a hot Triple Sec reduction.
Once the cake is in the oven, every eight minutes, coat it with egg wash
When sponge cake is done ; cut the center out, an inch and a half from each side
Cut all but a quarter inch from the top, cut excess into finger pieces.
Fill the center with ice cream and cover with top piece.
Using a no. twelve tip in the pastry bag, squiggle four horizontal and three vertical;
Meringue lines, place back in 400 degree oven for five minutes. Heat the Triple Sec,
Drizzle over the Sponge cake, and ignite, it should  make the meringue Golden Brown.
Tomorrow, each of YOU will make muffin size Baked Alaska.

    Wow. I want to eat it but not if I have to make it. This made me laugh. I made a sour cream raisin meringue covered pie for my brother at Christmas time because he was salivating and longing for one like our mom used to make. I labored through it and told him I never knew how much our mom loved us until I went through what she went through just to make us a pie. Congratulaltions on your win with this incredible convoluted dessert. Love, Joyce
