A Down Under dessert that most people here probably haven't even heard of. XD

"Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside, usually topped with fruit and whipped cream." 'Wikipedia'

I used the layer cake as a base, so it needs the same cooking skill level (6) etc. I used some of the textures with permission from lientebollemeis' Bresilienne Cake here at MTS or at her website. Thank you!

I used the fruit meshes from 4w25's dessert series to decorate the top.


She seems to have removed all her download links from MTS, but they're still available here.

Finally, I used some of exnem's textures from his cheesecake for the inside.

Both exnem and 4w25 seem to have retired from making Sim content and I couldn't contact them for permission, so I'm prepared to take the pavlova down if they object to the use of their meshes/textures.

It has a high polygon count due to the fruit pieces on top.

Polygon Count:

Slice = 805
Whole Cake = 4770

I FIXED IT!!! And at this point, I'd argue it doesn't actually require OFB at all! I was going through adding sub-menus to various foods and figured if I stuck this one in my newly-created "cakes" sub-menu, then at least I'd know which "Layer Cake" was the custom one (ie this one, since it'd be in the sub-menu). But the sub-menu on this food was being stubborn, much like the sub-menus on a lot of the foods I was attempting to sub-menu. And it turns out UK English was the issue! This cake was still listed as "Layer Cake" in the English UK strings, which were the ones I had to edit in order to make the sub-menus work for the "stubborn" foods, so I changed the "Layer Cake" there to say "Pavlova," and now not only does it show up in the sub-menu with the rest of my custom cakes, but it shows up as "Pavlova"!!! This food is now 100% working in my game, literally ever single aspect from fridge menus to ease of fulfilling "learn how to make..." wants.

A pavlova really, really should NOT be steaming. It's a cake sized meringue with whipped cream and fruit topping, none of which ought to be hot enough to steam. Frankly, I'm terrifed.
