Ice Cream Sponge Fruit Flan - Farewell Sister & Brother In Law!

My Sister and brother-in-law left home today. My husband and I felt the quietness when we came home. But the summer is over and they have to get ready for work soon. See you again soon - Farewell and I will miss you both!

This recipe is my sister-in-law's speciality. I just managed to snap some photos at the beginning but at the end I got too excited to eat them that I forgotten to take a photo of the whole cake before it was snapped up in seconds. I managed to take a photo of my piece though..

Secret of this recipe is fresh fruits and patience. It is a long process but it will worth the while. It can be a perfect birthday cake. It is so beautiful!

It also takes some thinking and skills . Some stationery is required to make this cake perfect. Scissors, plastic film and tape will do the job.

 The above is the 2nd step after baking the cake.To ensure that the corners are sealed to prevent leaking.

Yes the following is my share that I managed to take a photo. So pretty!

So moist, so refreshing! Thanks sister in law! I love this cake and hope to replicate the same soon!
