Alaskan Surprise

This little bit of science is supposed to show how the air bubbles in the cake and the merangue act as an insulator for the ice cream. So while we cooked it in the oven, the merangue and the cake stayed warm but the ice cream inside stayed cold. And it worked! 

This is the baking tray that came with the baking mix.
The cake we bought had a recipe for a some lemon icing so we decided to cut the cake in half so that we could make Alaskan Surprise and the cake with the icing.
