Blueberry Pavlovas

Be my Valentine, Eat my Pavlova Cake

Hey FFF friends. How are you? This friday i want to share the perfect Valentine’s cake recipe. It’s so sweet and tasty. Fruity and they melt in your mouth after the first crunchy bite. Really this is a poem. you should try it on for your Valentine’s diner.

I was inspired looking at all your pavlova cakes for Christmas, that i had to give it a try. And my first try is a good one!

I was inspired by the pavlova recipe of this magazine and worked on it to make it simplier with Nicolas, my bakery mentor.


In the nest of the meringues i added some strawberry cream.  Whipping cream, i didn’t add sugar in the chantilly because of the swiss meringue that is already really sweet. And finally on the top i added bluberry compotée.
