Emily bakes Bombe Alaska


Both my girls are wonderful cooks.
Emily made Bombe Alaska at school this week - in Science!

So she decided to make some for us too.
We didn't mind ;-)

Steve wanted to make the flambe version, but I didn't think that was such a good idea ...


Steve pitched in and helped at the time-sensitive steps
(such as getting the icecream, then the meringue onto the cake)

and Laura hung around hopefully ...



After just 3 minutes in the oven:


"I'll just pop it here on the stove for now ..."


The baking paper caught alight from the gas heating the kettle.
Yikes!
Luckily Super-Daddy was nearby to blow it out with a single puff.

Almost had a flambe, after all.

I'm happy to say that the
Bombe Alaska was enjoyed by all.

And some went into the freezer for another day.
