Oven or kitchen torch for Baked Alaska?

fargleberg | Dec 12, 201208:36 PM     16

I'm making my first baked alaska for a dinner party on Saturday (planning on assembling it on Friday, including meringue, keeping it in the freezer overnight, and then just browning it on Saturday when it's time for dessert), and I can't decide whether to brown it in the oven or with my brand-new kitchen torch. Torch definitely seems cool, but I'm wondering if it's nicer for the cake/ice cream to get just a little unfrozen in the oven while the meringue browns... any thoughts? Also, if anyone's got a favorite recipe, I'd love to hear it -- am currently planning on using Martha Stewart's Baked Alaska with Chocolate Cake and Chocolate ice cream.
Thanks!
