Inspiration Board: Baked Alaska


Is it just me or has the Baked Alaska taken on a whole new level of gorgeousness lately? I know that I have definitely been obsessed with it these last few months. There’s just something about that beautiful round mound of meringue that gets me ever time. And the things people do with the ice cream/sponge cake fillings, the wonderfully creative colors and designs, just blow my mind! I’m sure if I were ever to tackle this classic dessert, it would not be quite so perfect as these pics, but a girl can dream, can’t she? {Pictured above: Baked Alaska by The Food Network}

Very tempting. I really wanted to try that but i'm not good at this so i'm just satisfied just by looking.

I've never eaten a bomb alaska before. It maybe because its more of an American dessert. With these luscious photos you are tempting me to make my own to see what it is like.

It looks so yummy! I don't care about the sugar content. I desperately wanted to eat it. Too bad I don't know how to make one nor a place to buy one.

I have never seen such a beautiful dessert and still look so yummy. I see why you think it would be hard to make. If I attempted that dessert, I doubt you would wanna take a picture of it. Great post. Beautiful dessert!
