Bombe Alaska: Retro Ad & Recipe

I love Retro Ads & Recipe. This 1950s recipe for Bombe Alaska is still great. It's "A direct hit on summer appetites!" You can always substitute your favorite ice cream. I suggest you be very careful with the fire. The woman in the ad is pretty close to the flames.

Many years ago, a popular murder mystery film featured death by various culinary methods. The central thread was a spectacular dessert called "La Bombe" that was to be served at a large public gathering, somehow saving the baker's career. BUT, the evildoer decided to 'rig' the dessert so that it would explode at the gathering. Hilarious (in a very wicked sense) movie, and I always wondered how they created the dessert, with a layer of raspberries over the dome of ice cream. :-)
