So, naturally I assume that in your kitchen nothing ever fails. But if, for some reason, it does happen—say you’re baking a pavlova and in the midst of a long list of oven dishes to prepare, somehow stress causes you to open the oven door precisely while baking this delicate one—this recipe serves as a First Aid Manual.

Simply turn your pavlova into a trifle; no one will know the difference. On the contrary: Your guests will thank you and think this had been your intention all along. You can set everything in place in advance. After the main course you can put together the trifle in a heartbeat. Yes, I’ll say it again: Put it together at the very last moment—the foam in the cream, the caramel, and the pear syrup will dissolve after a while and you wouldn’t want two failures in one evening, now, would you?
