Birthday pavlova cake

Yesterday our little girl Bella turned five and I can’t believe how fast time fly. I feel it was just yesterday I brought home that tiny bundle who was so sleepy we had to wake up to feed. For her birthday she wanted a meringue cake she watched being baked on a cooking show. Yes I know the apple does not fall far from the tree and she likes cooking shows.

I actually was happy she wanted that since we had at least two people with wheat and gluten allergies coming to the party. I topped the pavlova with mimic whipped topping ( loves this) and fresh strawberries. I was suppose to shave dark chocolate over but forgot. The kids absolutely loved this cake and I’ve been getting lots of request for the recipe so hear loved once it is. Here is a recipe for pavlova

 We hosted Bella’s party at one of our favorite place, Mission Bay. The pavlova is in the middle.
Noah was so curious about the meringue being whipped that every time we took him somewhere else he would scream until we brought him back to the kitchen aid.
