Pavlova Christmas Wreath

Let the Christmas cooking begin! Treat your family and friends to the ultimate Christmas dessert... a Pavlova Christmas Wreath! This is a great Meringue recipe and will make 12 large individual meringues. For the wreath, I made them smaller and had heaps of mixture! Decorate the meringue with your favourite berries or fruits.
