Post No. 30: Flames of Love
Happy Valentines Day!!!
The Flames of Love is actually a Baked Alaska dessert. I know it’s a corny tittle but I like corny. When I first heard about this dessert, I naively thought to myself “a fishy dessert, how gross” but there’s nothing fishy about it. Unable to contain my curiosity about how it got it’s name, I went and googled it (lol). It’s a Norwegian dessert, the name of which was coined in 1876 to honor the recently acquired American territory. The name comes from the low temperatures of Alaska and Norway. History in a nutshell. Anyway, I got the recipe from here. It is super easy to make and I encourage you to try it :) The only set back I had had to do with my lack of camera skills. I wasn’t able to capture the flame when I set this dessert on fire. I desperately need to take a course in photography. Sprinkle Bakes actually has (amazing) step-by-step pictures. Here are some of mine:
