try it! In the picture, above, the cake had been sitting out for a few minutes while I was getting pictures and was melting. I recommend using a rimmed serving plate for containment.
I used a chocolate cake recipe - you could even use a mix. I used chocolate chip cookie dough and vanilla ice creams. His friends were amazed - everyone asked for 2nds. One dad called me up a few days later, saying that he was asking his son what he wanted for dessert and listing impossible items for fun - such as Baked Alaska! His son said he'd love some as he just had it at Colin's birthday. So, get out your bowls, ladies. You shouldn't miss this one.
