Pavlova Cake was created in honor of the legendary Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova when she toured Australia and New Zealand in the 20s of the 20th century. One theory holds that the cake originates in Australia, but New Zealanders claim Pavlova is their invention. Whoever created it deserves a big thank you.
This stunning cake consists of a meringue shell topped with luscious cream and fresh fruit, typically, passion fruit, kiwi, and strawberries, but may include other berries too, like in this recipe for Fresh Berry Pavlova Cake.
