You may have tried your hand at baking cake recipes from scratch, but what about attempting the Pavlova? This crisp cake is topped with fresh fruit and will be the perfect showstopper for your next dinner party. This delicate meringue cake honors the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova (1882-1931). Pavlova performed in Perth for only one season, in 1929, to stellar reviews. A few years later the pastry chef at the hotel where she had stayed, the Esplanade, created this meringue and cream cake and named it after her, both because it is light and because it resembles a tutu. Today a Pav, as it is generally referred to in Australia, is that countrys national dessert par excellence.
