Pavlova Wreath by cakecrumbs Pavlova Wreath by cakecrumbs
Just after Christmas, I bought my very first DSLR (and actually only my second camera in my lifetime). After reading a book on food photography it quickly became obvious that I couldn't put into effect most of what it spoke of, so I decided to make the investment. I hope this point onwards marks a start in much better food photography from me.

This pavlova wreath is the first thing I took a photo of with my new camera, so all the photos of it are essentially me not knowing how to work my camera yet. I'm learning new things every day and have a million more things to learn, but I am excited for the journey.

Now. Pavlova. It's an incredibly common dessert in New Zealand and Australia, but most people I've encountered from elsewhere have no idea what it is. It's basically a meringue with a crisp, crunchy exterior, and a marshmallowy interior. It's topped with fresh cream and the fruit of your choice and is basically heaven on a plate. If I could only choose one food item to eat for the rest of my life, it would be a pavlova.

This time, I created it in the shape of a wreath and, as it was originally intended for Christmas, I chose red bauble-like fruit to adorn it: cherries, strawberries and raspberries. It never got served for Christmas as I made too much food. :lmao:. So the boyfriend and I consumed it over the course next week. I regret nothing!

Reminds me of baked alaska! :love: I like how you list what things are mostly composed of on your deviation then link to the recipe. Something necessary that other deviants don't do. >.>

My mouth waters just seeing the picture. I definitely have to try this! However, as I went to your livejournal account to get the receipe, I saw there was one thing you forgot to mention : what do you do with the cornstarch and the vinegar? o.O

Oop. You just sprinkle it on top and fold it in after the meringue is beaten. I'll fix that up asap.
