  2. Place a sheet of pastry onto each of the trays or mats
  3. Place into oven and bake for approx 10 minutes or until golden brown
  4. Remove and let cool
  5. Custard
  6. Place sugar and cornflour into bowl for 4 seconds on Speed 5

    (This is a variant to the existing custard recipe in Cookidoo, you can look up custard and increase quanitites from cookidoo recipe if you would like guided cooking)

  8. Cook for 10 minutes, 90 degrees, speed 3
  9. Scrape down sides with spatula
  10. Cook for another 5 minutes, 90 degrees, speed 3 so that the custard can thicken

  12. Pour custard over pastry and top with the second sheet of pastry cooked side up.
  13. Place into fridge to set (2-4 hours)

  15. Once slice has set prepare icing
  16. Place icing sugar into a bowl and add a few drops of food colouring and one tablespoon of water at a time.

    You may need to keep adding more water, you want the consistency to be firm but spreadable.
