Vanilla cream
3 egg yolks
2,5 dl milk
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp vanilla sugar or a splash of vanilla extract

Strawberry jam
A handful of strawberries
1-3 tablespoon sugar
Juice from half of a lime

Do this: Heat all the ingredients in a saucepan and mix and mash the strawberries until a jam-like consistency. Put your jam in the fridge to cool.
                                               
Pavlova, do this: Preheat the oven to 130°C.

Whisk egg whites until a fluffy foam forms on top. Now, add the sugar gradually and continue whisking until soft peaks form and the meringue is thick and glossy and sugar has dissolved. Add the cornflour and vinegar and whisk quickly to combine.

Spoon the meringue on parchment paper and spread it across with a spatula or spoon and create a slight edge by working from the center and outwards.

Bake in the oven for 1 1/2 hours and turn off the oven and leave the pavlova in the oven until it has completely cooled, taking 3-5 hours usually.

Whip the whipping cream with an electric mixer or by hand.

After the meringue has cooled put your vanilla cream, strawberry jam, whipped cream, fig syrup, fresh strawberries and edible flowers on top. Serve right away.
