Ever dreamed of finding a quick and easy dessert that would absolutely blow your friends away, all without you needing to spend hours in the kitchen? Well, you can stop dreaming! This dairy-free baked alaska is proof that delicious desserts don’t need to be difficult – you just need a trick or two up your sleeve.

First things first – what exactly is baked alaska? It’s simply ice cream, sorbet or frozen yoghurt piled on top of light sponge cake and wrapped in a thick layer of meringue which is lightly toasted in the oven or with a kitchen torch. While the meringue gets nice and toasty, the centre of the dessert stays as chilled as ever. Pretty cool, huh?

Since all the flavour of this magical dessert comes from the frozen centre, it’s really important that you use a really good frozen treat – like Kapiti Whipped Sorbet. The team at Kapiti are totally committed to doing whatever it takes for taste and have absolutely nailed it with this dairy-free treat.

Warming ice cream sandwiches

Winter is officially here, and I’m pumped – there’s so much to love about the season! Think rain on the roof, lighting up the fireplace, pulling out all your warm winter clothes, and lazy mornings snuggled up in bed… winter’s actually pretty great.

The cold winter evenings we’ve been having are the perfect setting for a wonderful date night. I can’t think of much better than snuggling up in front of the fire with a good movie, a glass of your favourite wine and deliciously decadent dessert. Sounds the perfect date night, right?

One of my favourite desserts to whip up in winter is ice cream sandwiches. I know what you’re thinking – ice cream in winter? But forget about ice cream being a ‘summer thing’, it makes the perfect winter treat too. Imagine rich, creamy ice cream sandwiched between two warm, gooey chocolate chunk biscuits… hot and cold, creamy and delicious, they really are the perfect winter treat!
