A pavlova is usually just a round flat meringue with a raised ring of meringue around the circumference and all filled with fruit.
I was confused by the use of "as it happens." Obviously the show is not live (even in the UK), but I assume you meant that it's being made available almost simultaneously with the British broadcast and not a full season at a time.
Now for my question: One of the bakers said the smell of something (framboise?) reminded her of "calpol." (That's what the closed captioning said.) Does anyone know what that is?
Also, closed captioning always refers to the baker as "Steph," but she was wearing a necklace with "Steffi" on it this week.
