Mix and match teacup saucers and mini cake stands for individual cakes or as part of a display.

The first time I had heard about Baked Alaska was when my Sims character achieved top levels in cooking and it became one of my meal options. Alas, who knew that people actually made this dish in real life! Here's a recipe.... strawberry and vanilla gelato with chocolate cake and then covered in meringue that has been toasted on the outside.

A mixture between mousse and gelato, semifreddi's are made with lemon curd and Italian meringue which is less fragile which allows meringue to hold in the oven, frozen or be torched.
