Baked Alaska

Baked Alaska

I think I felt really dreamy about the baked alaska cutting video I saw on Instagram, and decided to make my own baked alaska.

We make a lot of cold desserts during summer. Since we bought an ice cream maker, home-made ice cream has become one of the freezer treats, along with my kids’ ultimate favourite strawberry sorbet.

But this baked alaska here is an easy peasy one to make. Doesn’t require an ice cream maker. I didn’t go all the way to make my own ice cream from scratch. But I also didn’t buy three boxes of ice cream in different flavours, because I hate having three big ice cream boxes of just a little ice cream left inside taken up most of my freezer space. So I just bought vanilla ice cream, add fresh strawberries and mangoes to make different flavours. And it totally worked!
