I've got a bit of a mad weekend ahead. You know how it is, no-one visits you for weeks and then they all come at once and it's always random combinations of people. Anyway, I'm trying to cook ahead and freeze what I can. Planning to make pavlova for Sunday lunch - how far in advance can I make it?

buy ready made meringue bases, whip cream and keep in the fridge, add fruit just before you serve it. If yo umake it too far in advance, meringue bases go all soggy as fruit seeps in.

It will store for a couple of days in an airtight container. Obviously you can't put the cream and bitz on until you are ready to serve it

Thank y'all. I wasn't planning on putting the cream and fruit until Sunday morning!

Will keep now. Put in airtight container, or if too big for your tins, put on serving plate and wrap well in cling film & put in coolish place. I keep meringues for quite a while in a good airtight tin.
