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 ...
The baking paper caught alight from the gas heating the kettle.
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.
