Learn how to make a Bombe Alaska cake in the theme of a candelabra.
I’ve always really appreciated the classic desserts. When I entered the pastry kitchen in the 1970’s, they were part of our everyday. We made them for big banquets where the lights would go out and scores of waiters paraded in to the room with flaming ice cream in their hands. Most of these classic desserts have a story behind them and were served to royalties and celebrities. Some were even created for and name specifically after them. What I am going to do today is one of those classic desserts. It’s not named after a prince or princess but I will be making it for my Prince and Princess (my grandchildren) and for you. 2 of my grandchildren have their birthday’s 2 days apart so we are going to celebrate on the same day and I will be making one cake for both of them. The boy is into Harry potter and the girl likes Disney princesses. Unusually, they asked for an Ice Cream cake this time so I thought a classic Bombe Alaska combined with a Candelabra theme to match the era, would be a good option. Hope you guys enjoy the tutorial!
