Last week saw one of the Nova staff have a birthday so as a surprise we planned a card and a kind of cake. We decided to go very Aussie with the cake and I made a Pavlova (also one of the staff member's favourites).
Pavlova is nothing much fancy but very sweet and tasty. It is basically a meringue with cream and fruit on top. It turned out well. My decorating skills are very rusty but it was very tasty and the staff and students loved it.
The birthday lady had a great day and thought the best thing was that it turned on some clear blue skies and sunshine after two weeks of cloud and rain.
It was a beautiful day and nice to get a reminder that this is sunny QLD even though I love the rain.
