remember to pack it securely in the tin,i recon a "driven merangue" might be a bit like a boxer's brain.

iirc a tinned softish one will last a week,very dry and crispy are long life (well maybe a month)

with either damp is your enemy and will make them go rather chewy

Chewy's OK for pavlova anyway. Good to have someone else to blame as well as Nick though.

If it's left anywhere near me it won't last long at all

Do a trial run. Make one today and drive it round for a few days to see how it is. I was forced to do this with chocolate chestnut cake to see if it freezes ok.

My opinion is that it will be fine. But I think meringue starts off inedible anyway.

How long is the drive? Pavlova freezes well.

In that case I would have thought that 5/6ish hours would defrost it nicely from frozen. Just pack it carefully. Will there be a Labrador in the car?

No to the lab, and the springer's going to kennels. I think I'll still assemble it on site though. I don't want everything to bleed together and I'm not sure about freezing lemon curd. Plus we're traveling Thursday and eating it on Saturday.

flat pack meringue seems a good way to go.

I've frozen lemon curd with no problems, but I would go with assembly on site as well.

This worked fine. The meringue wasn't really softish, I forgot it was in the oven and baked it for about three hours.

The remains are in my brother's freezer, so I'll find out how the freezing works in a while.

Freezing worked too. (Not for months, just forgot to add the update.)
