i'v just recently made the swedish summer cake from Nigella's Kitchen book and whilst the actual cake sponge turned out lovely the custard filling did not mix well the cream at all. I found that the custard just did not seem to thicken up in the pan whilst heating it and was just like a pouring liquid. Please can you let me know why this would be and how thick the custard should be before adding the cream? Many Thanks

Hi, I'm generally a good cook, but since i was younger i can not perfect a fried egg. You're probally thinking, could you ask for an easier task, but it's funny because i can do things, like perfect a pavlova, and creme brulee, but not a fried egg, can you give me any tips?
