Friday Shootout: Temptations.


Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballet dancer Ánna Pávlova. Colloquially referred to as "pav", it is a cake similar to meringue . Both New Zealand and Australia claim that they first made the Pav to honor the dancer when she came to Down Under. This Pav is made by my New Zealand born Australia Sister in Law Karen.

This is a kid's cake, In Australia, it is a mud cake and they call it a rainbow cake. I am a grand aunt. i bought this for my grand nephew.

My sister in law, Audrey's friend bought this Mango cake for her birthday. Mangoes were plentiful last summer.

This is my secret recipe chocolate mousse. Great for parties.
