Did not like this at all. Far to much custard powder. Have searched internet and found that it should be 2 not 8 tablespoons of custard powder. I have since tried the altered one and it was lovely. Filling ingredients should be put in mixer and whisked like butter ice. - 18 Feb 2010


I tried this recipe and it just tasted of pure custard powder nobody in my family liked it. I would of thought you would of have to cook the custard first other wise it would taste awful. What type of custard powder is it meant to be?? - 14 Oct 2009
