    Hi, most of the chocolate moist cakes i’ve tried have a custard cream filling in between the layers. I’ve searched for the recipe and have not found any. I noticed that you used a custard cream for your perfect chocolate cake. Do you mind sharing how that’s made?or does it come in pre-mixed. Thanks lots

    • Hi Krys, that was a store bought pre-mixed caramel syrup. You can try my custard filling recipe the one I used in my Crema de Fruta recipe, I hope you’ll like it too.
