Pavlova is one of the special desserts for me. My mum gave in to our every whim when it came to the birthday cake conversation: baked Alaska one year, a three tiered wedding cake for my sister the next, but pavlova would always pop up around my birthday because it was the quintessential summer dessert. Light, sweet, and airy, just like the ballerina whose tutu it was named after.
I had never made pavlova until this post. It always came with a lot of bother attached because of the meringue, and meringues can be fussy if they want to be. When I mentioned the idea she was ready with tips and corrections, she is a seasoned Pavlova pro after all.
