5 Flambéed Desserts to Set Your Instagram on Fire
Birthday cakes: no longer the only dessert that should (carefully) be making sparks fly. These days, pastry chefs are literally playing with fire, gracing our Instagram feeds with smoke-show desserts we can't stop staring at.
① Fire Cake at El Che Bar
Ninety percent of the menu at this Argentine Chicago spot is cooked over live fire. And then there's this chocolate mousse cake with marshmallows and honey caramel, which is soaked in vanilla-infused Everclear and actually arrives on fire.
② Spumoni Baked Alaska at Faith & Flower
③ Bananas Foster at Brennan's
It's mandatory to head to this timeless restaurant when visiting New Orleans—the place that invented this blazing dish—where you'll get a tableside show with your dessert.
④ Apple Tart at The Ivy Chelsea Garden
⑤ Fiery Chocolate Tart at Morimoto
Watch as this chocolate orb melts into a delightful puddle of salted caramel ganache, chocolate sorbet and marshmallow. This Orange Is the New Black star says it's worth every bite, so we're taking her word for it.
