Christmas Pavlova Wreath TOTAL cheat!

Christmas Pavlova Wreath TOTAL cheat!

Christmas Pavlova Wreath – cheats version! 

How beautiful does my Christmas Wreath Pavlova look?

However I need to tell you one thing, this is Soooooo easy it’s ridiculous, basically it’s just a construction job! I almost didn’t do a recipe card – but I decided to and it’s at the bottom of the post as always

You know what,  I’m all for making life easy and it’s sometimes ok just to throw something together especially when it looks as beautiful as this!

Why should we have to make everything from scratch all the time?

Sometimes I just haven’t got time – so this is perfect 

All the ingredients here are shop bought – you don’t even need to turn your oven on – but you can if you like. 

I’ll link below to a fab meringue recipe you incase you can’t buy them 

**TOP TIP** 

It is at its total best as soon as you make it. Shop bought meringues aren’t as robust as homemade ones and tend to disintegrate more quickly.

So PLEASE try and make it just before you want to eat it!! 

 

Pretty Festive Pavlova 

LOOK AT IT!!

Could it look any more christmassy? 

 

 

Fifteen minutes – twenty tops and you’re there.

A beautiful festive dessert to wow your guests. Fresh too – yum yum 

 

Step by step to your festive Cheat Pavlova Wreath

Step 1

First place your 8 shop bought meringue nests on a pretty place in a circle

 

Step 2 – Raspberry coulis & cream 

Whip your cream either by hand or using an electric mixer until stiff 

Spoon or pipe a dollop on each nest 

Then drizzle your shop bought raspberry coulis on the cream 

If you can’t find raspberry coulis then simply crush some raspberries in a bowl with a touch of icing sugar ( sieve it if you want seedless – those pesky raspberry seeds) 

 

Step 3 – Fill your pavlova wreath 

Next spoon a further dollop in-between the meringue nests- disguising that they are nests 

Then drizzle a little more raspberry sauce on 

 

 

Step 4 – Decorate 

Finally simply decorate with whatever you like. I used Strawberries, raspberries, blueberry, rosemary springs and a dusting of icing sugar. (looks like snow) 

Pop it in the fridge and viola!! Domestic god, or goddess! 

 

How long can I make my Pavlova before I eat it?

I would say make it as near to your event as possible – it’s so easy to make you only need 20 minutes 

It is at its total best as soon as you make it. Shop bought meringues aren’t as robust as homemade ones and tend to disintegrate more quickly. So PLEASE try and make it just before you want to eat it!!

  1. What is double cream? I’ve never seen it in the States.

    1. Hi Tina
      It’s heavy or whipping cream in the US
      Thanks Cx

  2. What is coulis

    1. It’s like a seedless puree – you can make it yourself by crushing some raspberries with some powdered sugar – Thank you

  3. So I am wondering what you would eat this with?

  4. 5 stars
    Amazingly simple, beautiful and very tasty. Thanks Clare this will be a winner Christmas in our house ! X

  5. Can it be made a day ahead?

    1. I wouldn’t if you are using bought meringue nests- but it’s so quick to make – it takes 10 mins. Thanks Clare

  6. The meringue would go very soft and disappear. So I would make it just before the meal. That way it would still be crunchy and fresh
