To prepare this advance, assemble the carrot cakes with the ice cream and keep in freezer. The meringue, though, needs to be added and torched immediately before serving directly on the plate. To add the meringue, you can use a spoon, a spatula, or pipe the meringue on...I used an offset spatula to achieve this look.
I served this simply with whipped cream and a curl of carrots on the side (to represent what’s inside the Baked Alaska) . I tossed the carrots with a little corn syrup for sheen and sweetness. Form it into a natural bundle and place it on top of whipped cream.
This can also be made into a full-sized cake. The baking time would simply be different.
