Bert I have to confess that I am not a dessert person but I am partial to custard sooooo as luck would have it I spotted your recipe. Excellent, easy and very tasty. Everyone enjoyed it. Just as you said in your instructions I think it is important to use boiled custard not instant. I had everything ready in the morning and put it together just before serving. I'll make this again and again Thanks bert

I love to cook and so I am thrilled that I found recipezaar. I work as an educational assistant in a food school so I am around food all day long. I have four children, three of which have already flown the coop so to speak but I still have my 'baby' at home. (He's 21). I am lucky in that I have my summers off so I spend a lot of time trying new recipes and catching up on my reading. I also play soccer in a ladies league to stay in shape.
