New Year’s Fruit Pavlova

January 13, 2013

Fruit Pavlova

I cooked up a feast to bring 2013 in with my bestest buds! I probably made too much food; it’s just how I roll. So much food, that no one even wanted coffee or dessert. So this pavlova was never even served, partially because I forgot too. A shame for a good dessert to receive no attention. ::sniff::sniff::

First meal of 2013

I picked this for new year’s because it’s a meringue and very light. You can pretend it’s healthy since there’s not much in it. Due to the cliche to go on a diet for a resolutions, that seemed appropriate. Again, I said pretend it’s healthy. It’s got a great crispy outside with a marshmallow inside, crumbles when you cut it. Oh, that sound of the crumbling is just divine!

Whipping up egg whites to make meringue

Supposedly this is the frequent dish in New Zealand, but I haven’t yet visited to justify this wikipedia claim. But I do plan to report on that accuracy one day.

About to go in the oven

Out of the oven

I’m excited to get jazzy with it; individual sizes, chocolate mousse, layer cake style, the possibilities are endless! But for my first go, I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, egg whites and sugar, that’s it (used this recipe).

Whipping up fresh whipped cream

Also, is there nothing better in this world than fresh whipped cream? Oh lordly lord, it’s hard to stay away from the stuff. I say a ton of meat, whipped cream, and fun friends is the perfect way to bring in a new year, so I was as thrilled as can be!
