Strawberry Moussecake with Flaming Meringue

It had already been a week rest and I guess it is time to churn out a nice dessert and also to spoil myself by indulging them later. What will be the best dessert to make this time after such a long hari raya break? Maybe something simple and yet looks beautiful and stunning. Hmmm…thinking!

I always wanted to use my new culinary torch, the one I bought from a hardware store, the best thing to make is a creme brulee. Creme brulee… hmmmm… sounds interesting as I can burn those sugar topping but in fact I just had them a day before at Mandarin Hotel. I guess I will not have such similar dessert as it will be so bored and crazy. I have an idea…… the vision of the flaming alaska came into mind… oh yes I would love that, but I had ran out of ice cream but I have some strawberry moussecake in my fridge. Strawberry moussecake. I make some meringue (whisk egg white and sugar) and I piped them onto the moussecake. Once done the flaming started. So cool and so fun as you can burn the dessert….lol.
