For our Trick or Treat Dinner, originally the cake was going to be mashed potatoes and meatloaf, but then we realized it would not be delicious at room temperature. So, Maybelle's Dad made baked Alaska of a sort.
Top meatloaf baked in large muffin tins with piped mashed potatoes. Broil and voila mid-century Americana times two.
