As a young child I was always awe-inspired with my Aunt Vi's Baked Alaska. This was in the day before chef's torches were a common household tool and she somehow managed to pull it off using the broiler in her oven. It was always exciting to see it arrive at the table, and even more fun to devour!
I've always wanted to attempt such a feat, but have always been terrified of the larger version. But making smaller individual ones is so less daunting, in fact, quite fun. So I thought it would be fun to make an ice cream cone version. Makes for a fun and special treat for Valentine's Day!
