Pavlova is a traditional dessert in New Zealand. It is a meringue base that is topped with whipped cream and fruit, usually kiwifruit. Children's birthday cakes are often pavlovas in New Zealand and may be decorated with candy. As with all meringues, this is best made on a dry day as high humidity can affect the end result. If you want a larger pavlova, just keep adding layers - you might want to make the bottom one a big wider so the creation doesn't tip! You must let the meringue sit for a few hours and I did not include that time. Enjoy!
