I was looking for some inspiration for Christmas dessert this year and this one really caught my eye. Jane of Jane’s Patisserie put up a video on her Facebook page showing how she made a Christmas Pavlova Wreath, and I thought it looked stunning!
I’m definitely going to give it a go this year as in my family nobody is that fussed for rich puddings or cakes at the end of the meal. Plus won’t the berries count as one of our 5 a day?
Here’s what Jane says on her Facebook video:
