Maple Whipped Cream

1. Whip the double cream, salt, vanilla paste, and maple syrup together until the cream begins to stiffen. 



Carefully place your Pavlova on a serving plate before adding the cream. Add the Maple whipped cream to the centre of the pavlova. It is normal for the centre of the pavlova to cave and crack slightly when you add the cream. Finish with fresh fruit and edible flowers.
