If you can't get it all together improvise!
Want to make Creme Brulee but don't have a torch handy? An oven on broil will do just the same. Creme Brulee has a custard base and when the sugar topping is torched it creates a hard caramel coating. Many stray away from this delectable dessert for the lack of having a torch. However placing it in an oven on broil and carefully watching the progress can create the same effect and give you a scrumptious, restaurant quality dessert.
