comment What is the best way to making a great pavlova base?
Having read the comments and Yossarin's answer - they are right to point out that it will go soggy if you top it too long before you want to eat it.

comment How to make “honeycomb” less sticky?
Good question - we also tried making this and it just came out a sticky gooey mess.

comment How do I pound chicken (or other meat) without making a mess?
I do this too with no problem - making sure to not fully zip the bag closed - leave a small gap for air to escape otherwise it will burst. Also I use a wooden rolling pin to pound it flat so it doesn't break the bag at all.

I am in the UK and the puree I am using comes in a tube like toothpaste. It is probably the same as what you are calling paste.

comment Can I freeze muffin mixture?
I had noticed that before I posted the question but this solution didn't help as I had run out of muffin cases and didn't have time to get more. (Yes, I am aware that I could have baked them without cases in a well-greased tin.)
