Pile the meringue onto the lined bak­ing tray, smooth­ing the sides out and flat­ten­ing the top – but not too much. The meringue will ex­pand, so don’t take it too close to the edge.

Turn off the oven, leav­ing pavlova in­side un­til com­pletely cooled. Be­fore serv­ing, gen­tly slide the pavlova onto a serv­ing plate.

Dress just be­fore serv­ing. There are many ways to dress a pavlova. Whipped cream with straw­ber­ries and pas­sion­fruit pulp are the tra­di­tional dress­ings.
