Chocolate Pavlova

Martha Stewart’s Chocolate Pavlova

It may sound like a chore to some, but I love making my own birthday cake. Although I could just treat myself to my fall-back favorite each year (coconut cake piled high with fluffy white frosting…drool…), I instead try something new every year.  This year I decided to go a little untraditional by making this chocolate pavlova. A cocoa-scented meringue base, filled with rich chocolate cream and topped with whipped cream pillows and fine chocolate shavings, it did its job of holding a birthday candle and leaving my guests wanting more.
