Baked Alaska is one the the most requested desserts at my house. I like to make individual portions ~ they provides a nice little wow factor, but are really simple to put together.
For the base you can use almost any cake, cake slices, or cupcakes.
This time I made my favorite Butter Cake recipe into "Texas" size cupcakes. Slices of pound cake, or pieces of any plain cake work equally well.
I just cut the crown off of the cupcakes, split them as you see above and put a slab of your favorite ice cream between the layers, top with the cupcake slice, then slather with simple meringue and place under the broiler until lightly browned.
You can also spread a layer of your favorite jam, or spread between the layers before adding the ice cream.
You can pipe the meringue with a fancy design, or simply slather it as I usually do ~ believe me it tastes just as good as whether it is piped on or slathered. :)
