*Chef Susan's words of wisdom

I know what you are thinking. What fun is making "Wild Fire Bananas" if I can't make the big flame that sometimes licks the ceiling at Thunder Bay Grille. The answer is simple. In a restaurant we have very high ceilings, roof ventilation, sprinkler systems, and trained professionals (kinda) to deal with flamage. So unless you have enough ice cream for the entire fire department, I would stick to the method above. Trust me, you're sweetie won't be disappointed.
