pavlova base w/vanilla ice cream. Too sweet?

    Depends how sweet your ice cream is, but my concern would be the ice cream melting. I like pavlova to sit for a little while, with the cream softening into the top of the meringue and making a fudgy texture.
    If you don't mind it not sitting then it would be fine, but I'd argue that it's not technically pavlova!
    Although - consider Baked Alaska - which is meringue and ice cream. That works!

    Could you break the meringue up and serve it in the ice cream with fruit?
     
  3. I do have Elmlea in the fridge (unopened) but I am aware that is 'fake' cream so am wary that it might taste fake? A neighbour gave it to me saying he would never use it! I could flavour it with a vanilla seeds (from a vanilla pod) but don't want to waste it if it is definitely going to taste 'fake'?


    Nick - how long do you leave the cream on the pavlova for before serving?
