Creme de la cakes

September 28, 2017

When I think of a Baked Alaska, I picture it travelling on a polished brass dessert trolley through the heavily gilded halls of a fancy two-hundred-year-old American hotel. It was Charles Ranhofer, chef at the famous Delmonico’s restaurant in New York, who created the cake to celebrate the United States purchase of Alaska from the Russians in 1867. Well, this decadent pud is making a comeback, and while it’s not my top choice of cakes, she sure is pretty to look at.
