Bake 12 minutes until golden brown,Cool pastries completely on rack before adding filling and meringue later in process (at step 4). Repeat making pastries using second package puff pastry dough while first batch bakes (below).

Assembling the Cake

When your cake is baked and cooled, use a long serrated knife to cut it in half horizontally, It should come apart with ease; if not, run your knife under hot water to get it warm and then try again,Once you have two cake layers (you'll use one of them for another recipe), split each layer in half again so that you end up with four equal pieces of cake.

Add a dab of whipped cream to each piece, spread it evenly across, then top with a heaping spoonful of strawberry jam (or your favorite flavor). Mix 2 cups crushed ice with 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk until well combined.

The first time I made a baked Alaska I was terrified of what would happen if I forgot to bring it out of the freezer to thaw,That’s where a hot, wet towel comes in handy, Make sure you protect your hands with an oven mitt or kitchen towel as you take it out and set it on your counter top.

It takes about five minutes for your dessert to thaw enough that you can move onto step three. After taking some shots of my delicious looking baked alaska I looked back at my directions, realized that now was not step two and hastily placed it back into my freezer so it wouldn’t melt before all could get some photos taken! When I went back after ten minutes had passed things were definitely not looking good.
