Learn how to make a Mango Cream Pavlova.

Every now and then, I like to add a classic café style cake to my library of tutorials. Today I am going to sandwich a Mango Cream Pavlova cake and finish it off with a little twist. My aim is to show you that even a simple store-bought Meringue base can turn to a delicious mouth watering Gateau with just a few additions. Pavlova has a soft texture that includes a baked meringue with a little crust finished with cream and fruits. I love it but I also love my moist mud cake. So for this tutorial, I want to marry these two and create a layered cake which can be cut to present a great looking slice instead of a spooned dessert on a plate.

White Chocolate (Compound) Wikipedia


Compound chocolate is a product made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fat, and sweeteners. It is used as a lower-cost alternative to true chocolate, as it uses less-expensive hard vegetable fats such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil in place of the more expensive cocoa butter. It may also be known as 'compound coating' or 'chocolatey coating' when used as a coating for candy.
