Watch Wynn’s Elizabeth Peck Make the Mt. Fuji at Andrea’s

This one-foot tall dessert takes a day to make and is lit on fire at your table.

Table side preparations of dessert are no stranger to Las Vegas, but this one takes a day to prepare in advance, stands one foot tall and involves flames right on your table. The Mt. Fuji at Andrea’s involves devil’s food cake layered with a Myers dark rum mousse, all layered in a cone and frozen. Wynn Las Vegas executive pastry sous chef Elizabeth Peck then coats the outside with a 64 percent dark chocolate followed by fluffy meringue that’s lightly torched in advance.

Then comes the big reveal at your table. A server pours Bacardi 151 over the entire dessert and lights it on fire. The Mr. Fuji serves 10 people, and smaller versions are available for five to six people.

Go ahead and watch Peck create this cake tower in the video below.
