A gorgeous dessert, this almond cake has a rich, buttery flavor and toasted almond topping. Serve with strawberry-rhubarb compote or seasonal fruit.
Strata of coconut sorbet and chocolate ice cream are slathered in a spiky meringue then the Alaska is slid into the oven to toast the outside.
Three layers of dark chocolate cake are filling and surrounded by a seven-minute frosting. The finish: sweetened coconut. This is a perfect birthday cake.
