She says…
“Meringue is one of those recipes many people have real difficulty making. But if you know how to make one, it becomes easy peasy. My tip when making any pavlova recipe is to let it dry out properly after you have baked it.”  

She suggests the following…
“Try baking it at night and then once cooked, turn off the oven but leave the meringue in there overnight. In the morning take it out, whip up some double cream and add to the top and decorate with fresh fruit.”
