A Pavlova is a meringue cake with a light, delicate, crisp crust and a soft sweet marshmallow center. If cracks start to form when you open the oven. Don't be disheartened, just make some extra whipped cream to fill in the hole if this happens. It will still be a spectacular dessert.
To serve: Pour a little of the consommé into a large bowl, sit the Pavlova on top of the consommé and arrange a scoop of vanilla ice cream either beside or under the Pavlova. Garnish with additional strawberries.
