Raspberry Sauce

* Ingredients:

2 cups frozen raspberries

2 tbs. sugar

* Directions:

Combine in a saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and cook about 3
minutes or until sugar dissolves and berries are softened. Stir
constantly. Stain raspberry mixture. Discard seeds.

Chocolate Sauce

* Ingredients:

3 oz. sugar

4 oz. corn syrup

3 oz. unsweetened cocoa

2/3 oz. vanilla extract

4 oz. water

* Ingredients:

10 egg whites

½ tsp. cream of tartar

1 cup powdered sugar

* Directions:

Whip egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
Gradually add sugar until stiff peaks form.

* Directions:


Cut 5" squares out of the cake. For each square, cut square in
half, depth-wise (so that you have pieces that look like a slice of
bread). Spread the chocolate and vanilla yogurt in layers over the
bottom half of the cake slice. Put the top half of the cake slice
on top, making a yogurt sandwich. Ice the cake with the meringue.
If desired, pipe a decorative border around the cake. Lightly toast
the meringue with a propane torch (or under broiler).

Place two tablespoons of each sauce, chocolate and raspberry, on
the opposite sides of the plate. Slice the Baked Alaska and lay the
slice on top of the two sauces. Serve.
