Pavlova with strawberries and cream
Pavlova is so much fun, it's one of those desserts that you just can't stop eating, because it's light, yet sweet, summerish, yet delicate. Amazing. It's named after a famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. The base of this dessert is a soft, delicate meringue, that is baked on a low temperature until completely dry. This way it's soft inside and crisp outside. For the topping we used our homegrown strawberries and a combination of whipping cream and mascarpone cheese. Simple and delicious. This treat is great for picnics, birthdays or even weekend gatherings. Yumm.

Lets get cooking!
