This year has certainly been a year for unconventional birthday cakes in my family! My mum requested a mango passion fruit pavlova for her birthday, so I created a two-tier layered pavlova.
For the meringue part I used the same recipe as my red berry pavlova, only with four egg whites and everything else scaled down accordingly (except for the cream and fruit, which largely stayed the same to have enough for two layers). Crispy on the outside, marshmallowy on the inside, sweet offset with creamy and tangy. Yum.
Happy birthday, mum!
