The mess hall saved the best for last. LOVED this dessert. The picture doesn\'t quite show it, but I added a touch of marischino cherry juice to the whipped cream so it has a very slight pink color (and a bit of a "cherry" taste, too.) I also added a few honey pecans for garnish.

The Pavlova dessert is believed to have been created  in Wellington New Zealand in honor of Anna Pavlova when the famed ballerina performed “down under” in the 1920’s.
