I’ve seen images of pavlovas sprinkled across the internet and featured in glossy magazines over the years and always thought, “Wow, that is a beautiful dessert! Must be complicated to make…” So I would go on with my life, turning to my tried and true dessert recipes when I was in the mood for something sweet.
In the past year I’ve tried to be more adventurous with my baking and after a semi-success with our Nutella Brioche Swirls, my confidence was raised. Over the weekend I decided it was finally time to try the legendary pavlova – and guess what?! I was nervous for no reason! These mini pavlovas were a breeze to make.
