Anne here, bringing us to the final day of our Christmastide posts. It's debatable whether it's the 12th day of Christmas — some sources say that is the 5th January, other say it's the 6th, but we wenches count the days from Christmas day. It's traditionally the day to take down your Christmas decorations and greenery, though I know many people ignore that these days.
But when I googled 5th January it said it was also National Whipped Cream Day. Which I think is ridiculous — who thinks up these things? But anyway, I couldn't resist.
Pavlova, a dessert very popular down under (where it's summertime at the moment) is often served at Christmas. If you've never had it, it's a meringue base, covered with lashings of whipped cream and topped with fresh fruit. Here's one I prepared earlier. <g> And if you'd like to see a truly spectacular Christmas Pavlova, click here.
Some people I know squirt their whipped cream out of a can, but I'm old fashioned — I whip it myself.
So here I am, wishing you Happy Whipped Cream Day (snort)! and welcoming you all back to our regular schedule of Wenchly blog posts — three times a week.
Do you like whipped cream? Or squirty cream? What do you like it with? Or do you avoid it? And what about pavlova? Are you a fan or not?
