Cake pops, also called cake balls, are a form of cake that is shaped like a lollipop. In fact, the name 'cake pops' is a contraction of the term cake lollipops. To make cake pops, you simply mix cake crumbs with icing, frosting, or chocolate and then form them into small spheres.
The name Baked Alaska originated at Delmonico's Restaurant in New York City in 1876, and was created in honor of the newly acquired territory of Alaska. This dessert is also called omelette á la norvégienne, Norwegian omelette, omelette surprise, and glace au four (ice cream in oven).
Dark chocolate, also known as "plain chocolate", is produced using a higher percentage of cocoa with all fat content coming from cocoa butter instead of milk, but there are also "dark milk" chocolates and many degrees of hybrids. No introductions are needed for this highly treasured food that dates back to 2000 BC. Dark chocolate contains lots of antioxidants that help the cardiovascular system by reducing blood pressure.
