    I want to make Baked Alaska. I have cream, milk, vanilla beans, butter, sugar, whole eggs, milk, flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt, egg yolk, egg white, etcetera, but it doesn't turn out right and looks a mess.
    Please help me make it become like the one in the picture.

    @Doreen Well, first your start by actually finding a picture of a Baked Alaska! - there is no ice cream in that picture.  :D

    Isn't that ice cream between the layers of gingerbread and right under the meringue? It's a Christmas version btw. :)

    @Doreen dang, it seems you are right - I didn’t even notice the subtle color difference!  :D :D :D :D

  • I think nobody is there to help me out. OK Thanks.

    @bsingle What @Doreen is saying is that you might have the ingredients, but to create a product from scratch takes time, experience, plus an understanding of the raw materials and their interactions.

    In essence what you are asking for is “how do I make an emulsion”.

    There are several online sources for this and even some accredited distance learning courses.

    A few pointers: make sure the to phases are approximately the same temperature water can be a little higher. When combining use a mixing method that introduces less air than you current one (aka, don’t use a whisk)

    ^^^ Exactly. What @Sibech said. The reason we didn't try to answer your original question was that it was as if a random person walks into a car factory and says, "I have some pistons, a cylinder block, some wheels, seats, a couple of doors, can someone please tell me how to build a car."
    Here, we don't mind at all helping out, but it isn't cosmetic school. Try swiftcraftymonkey for suitable formulae, and experiment.

  • @bsingle - why not post your formula along with the percentages and include your process. I bet you’d get more suggestions.

    This group needs a like button! "....it isn't a cosmetic school." was right on point.
