  • On top of it, place a clean, medium-sized bowl.
  • Add 2 cups of milk.
  • As soon as the milk warms up, whisk in 1 cup of sugar, 1 Tablespoon of flour, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Stir occasionally. 
  • Whisk very quickly when adding 4 egg yolks. Let it all cook until the cream becomes thicker.

  • Place the bowl in the fridge, it needs to cool down completely.
  • With a hand mixer beat 2 sticks of softened butter (16 Tablespoons). Add into the cream that you boiled.

  • You can decorate the cake any way you like. I chose to put more of the cream around the cake, with sprinkled sliced almonds on the side. Add 2 Tablespoons of Nutella to the remaining cream and spread it on top.
