We're throwing it back to 1867 with Mini Baked Alaska! Created to celebrate the purchase of the Alaskan territory, who wouldn't be excited about an ice cream cake covered in fluffy toasted meringue? These impressive desserts are truly a labor of love and packed with refreshing sweet-tart flavor thanks to our Mango and Raspberry Artisan. Switch up the flavors (and colors!) with your favorite Artisans! Serves 5-6.

ASSEMBLY
  1. Remove the ice creams from the freezer for about 30 minutes to get soft.

  6. Bring the edges of plastic over the top of the cake and seal.
  7. Repeat with remaining bowls.

MERINGUE
  1. Whip the egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed to soft peak.
  2. Slowly rain in the sugar and whip for 3-6 minutes.
  3. Add the white wine vinegar and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla and continue to whip until the meringue is glossy and no grit is felt between your fingers.
  4. Remove the bowls from the freezer and lift the entire piece out of the bowl.
  5. Unwrap the plastic to the edges, place a small plate over the top of the cake layer and invert it, removing the rest of the plastic.
  6. Pipe the meringue onto the entire dessert and lightly torch the meringue.
  7. Serve immediately.
