Pavlova is a sophisticated and elegant dessert that comes to mind at holiday time. It never goes out of style. Pavlova is a meringue-based cake named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light, inside, usually topped with fruit and whipped cream. Once you try this seemingly difficult dessert, you will realize it is not daunting at all and the meringue shells can be made ahead 3–4 days in advance and stored in an air-tight container. When last-minute holiday guests show up, just make your topping in 5–10 minutes and poof—you have a fabulous dessert which will wow your guests!
