up the eggs, yolks and sugar in a mixer

the butter and milk together, and sift
the cake flour.
When the eggs are at full peaks, alternately mix in with a spatula

Cut 12 rounds that are half as wide as the base of the ice cream scoop
you will be using. These will support the meringue.
To assemble: Take your cut cake round and spread 1 tablespoon orange marmalade
in a thick layer. Scoop 1 big scoop of your Earl Grey Tea Ice Cream on top. Immediately after doing this, freeze the assembled pieces to allow the ice cream to harden for a minimum of 2 hours.
Once the ice cream is hard, pipe your Italian Meringue directly on top, in upward spike motions, taking care to cover the base and not leaving any empty spots. Freeze again until ready for use, a minimum of 1 hour, but you could assemble them up to 2 days in advance and keep frozen.
Warm up your vodka a little in the microwave. Pour 2 ounces vodka per serving directly on top, then torch the baked Alaska
on fire so the flame will toast the meringue.
