Baked Alaska Bombe

This bombe isn't as big as the one at Martha's party, but it is still spectacular. You will need a small kitchen torch, for browning the meringue frosting.

Cook's Notes

To finish Martha's baked Alaska bombe, meringue was piped over layers of ice cream and sorbet. The creation was then briefly frozen and lightly browned with a kitchen torch before being served with fresh fruit and dacquoise cookies.
