Baked Alaska is an easy dessert to make, and it’s quite versatile. The cake and ice cream can be cut or molded in a variety of shapes and sizes. Make small, individual baked Alaska desserts or one large cake. If you want a dome-shaped cake, soften the ice cream and then freeze it in a large bowl; unmold it onto a round cake and then cover it with the meringue. Or use small store-bought sponge cake shells to make single-serve desserts.
