Notability[edit]

This really needs to go to Wikibooks for the cookbook in that it is mostly a recipie; does it have enough cultural significance to stay here? (Was it bigger in the 1960s because there were more big dinner parties then? Or was there a more general fasicination with "Alaska" and things named for it in the lower 48 then because it was new as a state?) Rlquall 04:28, 9 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Baked Alaska is still served on many cruiseships, especially on Alaskan cruises. I looked this up out of curiousity of the ingredients after returing from such a cruise and I think the article should stay to assist those similarly curious. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.193.252.225 (talkcontribs) 09:35, 27 August 2006

Sugar[edit]

Where does the sugar get added in the recipe, it isn't listed! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nodmonkey (talkcontribs) 21:49, 5 July 2005

Frozen Florida[edit]

If there is not a link to Frozen Florida, it should probably be dropped. Not sure that it is a valid item or a joke. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aarenz (talkcontribs) 16:13, 1 February 2006

Trivia?[edit]

The single piece of trivia under the Trivia subsection needs to be either expanded or deleted completely. If nothing happens in 48 hours, I'll take it upon myself to delete it. Matthew 20:54, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

Reference?[edit]

The is a problem with the referance. I will fix it but if it is supposed to stay like that ok. You have 24 hours or I will change.--Williamaiman 19:38, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

chinese invention of baking ice cream in an insulated shell[edit]

I find this difficult to believe. Nine tenths of the chinese population is lactose intolerant. Where is the motvation to make such a discovery 67.183.74.204 (talk) 20:53, 15 December 2007 (UTC).

Most lactose intolegant people can consume some milk/lactose without any severe symptons. And the level of lactose in ice cream isn't actually that high. I think you'll find ice cream is actually quite popular in China and some sources suggest they may have been one of the early inventors Nil Einne (talk) 22:10, 25 August 2008 (UTC)


Dodgy trivia removed[edit]

I'm removing the unsourced and unlikely Orignially discovered by a Mr Kevin Barnes, Hotel Institute Montreux F&B Manager. He is credited for the discover [sic] but some say it was an ancient Mayan recipe thought to be used during virgin sacrifices.

Feel free to put it back in if you can back it up with references, but I was always taught that the Mayans only ever used arctic rolls and cheesecakes in their religious ceremonies. Traveller palm (talk) 19:01, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Christmas Pudding?[edit]

Really? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.158.61.141 (talk) 20:33, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Flame on the iceberg should be merged into Baked Alaska[edit]

Flame on the iceberg is just another name of Bombe Alaska, a close variation of Baked Alaska which has been already mentioned in this article.--202.40.137.199 (talk) 04:34, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

[edit]

This "The process was simplified in 1974 by Jacqueline Halliday Diaz who invented a baking pan for Baked Alaska called Cūlinique ..." reads like an advertisement for "Cūlinique". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Justinzagar (talkcontribs) 14:33, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

It does rather. I looked back a good long way and found an earlier version of this sentence:
The process was simplified in 1974 by Jacqueline Halliday Diaz who invented a baking pan for Baked Alaska that forms a fillable hollow.
So the brand name has been added at some point. Let's remove it. LynwoodF (talk) 14:58, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
