Flaming Beehive Cake


Flaming beehive cake! It may be hard to see, but there is a flame there. This is a yellow cake filled with a dark chocolate mousse and then covered with meringue, which I browned under the broiler. A little Calvados on the top, and we were set. Happy New Year! Posted by Picasa

Sounds delicious, and fun! I've never set a cake on fire. :D

Maybe you should make that a goal for this year: set cake on fire.

Actually, it was surprisingly hard to get the flame lit -- you'd think that Calvados would be plenty flammable, but it took several tries. I think I'll have to do it again sometime, just to make sure I've got it down. :b
