A pavlova is a type of meringue. But whilst a meringue is dry and crispy throughout, a pavlova has a crispy shell and a soft, chewy and marshmallow-like centre. Today we have a choice of both.
Ingredients:Pavlova:3 eggs whites180g caster sugar¼ tsp baking powder¼ tsp vanilla extractPinch of salt
Lemon curd:120ml double cream120g lemon curd
To decorate:Lemon curd (to drizzle)Lemon zest
Method:Pavlova: Pre heat oven to 150⁰C. Line a baking tray. Whisk eggs whites and salt on slow for 1-2 minutes. Increase speed to medium and continue to whisk for another couple of minutes until the egg whites have formed stiff peaks (but still moist). Increase speed to high and gradually add the sugar and baking powder until all is incorporated and mixture is stiff and glossy, then whisk in the vanilla.
Either use a large spoon and place blobs on a baking tray, or cut a large hole in the bottom of a piping bay and pipe out large dollops. Reduce oven temperature to 140⁰C and bake for appx 30-40 mins. When ready turn off oven and leave meringues in to cool.
Lemon curd: Whip up the cream until thick and airy but still with a softness. Gently fold in the lemon curd. Leave in the fridge until the pavlovas have completely cooled, then spread a generous amount over the top of one and then place another on top, being careful not to press too hard or they will collapse!
Place in the freezer until ready to serve but take out 30 mins prior to eating. Drizzle over some of the remaining lemon curd and some lemon zest.
Ingredients: (makes 7 – 8 snowmen)1 large egg white60gms caster sugarpinch of salt
Method:Pre heat oven to 130⁰C (fan). Line a baking tray.
Whisk egg white and salt on slow for 1-2 minutes. Increase speed to medium and continue to whisk for another minute or two until the egg whites have formed stiff peaks (but still moist). Increase speed to high and gradually add the sugar until all is incorporated and mixture is stiff and glossy, (this can take a few mins).
Pipe the mixture onto the prepared baking tray. Cut a large hole at the end of the piping bag, squeeze out an amount and then lift the bag slightly to get a smaller amount on top for the head. Reduce oven temperature to 120⁰C and bake for appx 18-20 mins.
When ready turn off oven and leave meringues in to cool. Use coloured icing tubes or make the icing by mixing a small amount of water with icing sugar and food dye to colour, and decorate your snowmen.

A regular comment from new clients is, “I’ve just got bad hair!” Usually, these clients' life experiences are of badly chosen or badly executed hairstyles. In reality, there isn’t good or bad hair. Some hair will...
