A vanilla cake or cupcakes layered with a Custard Filling is so simple and understated and as a result somewhat under-rated. This is a truly spectacular combination.
A white cake or cupcakes with a splash of amaretto or other dessert liqueur and custard layers is a traditional birthday cake in many households around the world. It looks difficult to make but looks can be deceptive.
Me and custards have become a bit of a joke in my household. I always have a mental block when I come to make them and I seem to make them way too thick or way too runny when I make them from memory. Custard is one of those things where I must follow a recipe and this recipe is great.
This is a pouring custard that sets on refrigeration and can then be spread or piped onto cupcakes.
