About a month ago we visited Twin Pies
in Linesville, PA. While we were there, we spotted a whole white cake covered in fruit and inquired about it. The nice lady behind the counter told us it was a Pavlova, something neither one of us had heard of before. Since we were spending the day driving around and this is a dessert that doesn't travel well, we stored that bit of information in the back of our minds.
This past Wednesday, I called Twin Pies
and ordered a Pavlova for pick up on Saturday. They only make them on weekends and during the height of Summer berry season. Here is what it looked like it the box:
This is a raspberry infused meringue cake, topped with real whipped cream, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and kiwi fruit. The outside of the meringue has a more dense slight crisp about it,
while the interior meringue has a marshmallowy texture. Apparently, this dessert originates in New Zealand and was named after Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova.
I would tell you that the photos subconsciously made me drool, but that would be Pavlov cake instead.
Anyone have experience with Pavlova cake before?
