Who doesn't like Pavlova...that crispy sweet desert. This pavlova however comes in sheets like cling wrap, and especially meant for wrapping presents. One side is sticky, but hardens quickly, and so as to not actually hold itself to the actual gift.

Once the present ready to be opened, simply break off a piece of the pavlova and eat it, pass it around for the whole family to enjoy. No more need for scissors or tape, when wrapping. And no more huge mess of wrapping paper. As well it will slow down the kids from eating all their presents at once =)

Pavlova Recipe (and a great FAQ) http://www.explorat...recipe-pavlova.html
The part that's used in this idea (I think) is a meringue shell: beaten egg-whites mixed with sugar and browned in an oven. [jutta, Aug 18 2002]

And more... http://nz.com/NZ/Cu...od/OriginOfPav.html
Similar recipes were found in NZ cookbooks as early as the 1920's. I will not be moved on this one. [Helium, Aug 18 2002]

       You obviously haven't seen kids on a sugar high. I thought Christmas was supposed to be a pleasant thing.

       What is pavlova? It sounds like Pavlov's sister...

       Pavlova comes from Australia. Discuss.
smokeyjohnson, Aug 18 2002
  

       Australians will try to tell you that but it was actually created by a New Zealander. Ok finished discussing.

       Pavlova was invented by Sylvain Pavlova of Paris in 1875. Originally from Marseille, the young Pavlova travelled to the capital to cook in the kitchen of legendary chef Olivier Benedict, a man whose work with eggs was internationally renowned. It was after the pair parted company that Pavlova invented his signature dish, though Benedict always maintained that they had created the dish together.

       Calum, thank you for that excellent example of the rantings and confused untruths that can occur from the mouths of those on a sugar high.

       That's proof? And you call yourself a lawyer. ;-)
