    My tips are not to use a lamington tin, just spread it out on baking paper on a baking tray like you do a normal pavlova but in a long rectangle shape. Then you don't need to worry about it sticking to the sides of the pan and you can just flip it onto a surface for rolling. Also, bake it long enough to be going golden otherwise if it is undercooked it'll crack and you won't be able to roll it out.  -  16 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Altered ingredient amounts. When rolling the pavlova after putting on the cream and fruit grab the paper and use this to start the roll, then when rolled use 2 egg slides or cake servers to lift onto serving platter.  -  29 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I thought this was easy to prepare and easy to roll up too using the sugared paper. I made mine for Boxing Day lunch and filled it with whipped cream and chopped up canned peaches and it went down a treat! Very light and (almost too) easy to eat!  -  25 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
