Pavlova always a great dessert this looks great and not to hard to make.

2 sticks cinnamon sticks
6 egg whites
1 1/2 cups caster sugar

Preheat the oven to 150deg.C and line 3 baking trays with non stick baking paper. Then draw a 20 cm circle on each sheet, and sprinkle with cornflour. Beat the egg whites untill stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar beating well between each addition. Beat until thick and glossy and all the sugar is dissolved. Now beat in the cocoa.

Now spread the Meringue over the 3 circles. Bake for 1 hour, or until crisp, then turn the oven off, leave the meringues in the oven until cold.

Put a second meringue layer on top, spread with half the remaining cream and the rest of the cherries. Put the last meringue on top and spread with the rest of the cream.
