We used bought madeira sponge cake, but any sponge cake or flan case will do the trick. Please note: you might have some meringue mixture left over.
Prepare the ice cream sponge bases up to 2-3 days ahead and store in the freezer, wrapped, until ready to finish the dish (steps 3-4).
The secret to baked Alaska is to make sure everything is frozen solid before adding the meringue. It’s also important to heat the oven before you start whisking the meringue – any delay and the ice cream might start melting too quickly. And don’t leave any gaps in the meringue coating.
