3)Place on a medium heat and stir continously until thick consistency. Remove from the heat and let it cool down completely.

4)To assemble the cake, line the round cake pan with cling film. Place the first half of the cake into the pan.

5)Spread 2-3 scoops of gelatine syrup on top of the first half of the cake. Spread half of the custard evenly and spread the half of fruit cocktail.
