    (2) Cook over medium heat till mixture thickens and smooth. Cool slightly before using. Make sure it is still in pouring consistency.

    (3) Place a slice of sponge cake into a cake ring, pour in some kaya and continue the same process till the last layer is covered with pandan kaya. Press slightly after layering the cake onto the kaya and make sure that the kaya fills the sides on the last layer.

If you are using an ordinary cake pan, line the cake tin before putting in the first layer of cake and when removing cake, introduce air in by folding 3 or 4 strips of paper and slipped them to the side of cake. Cake will then dislodged easily.

    (6) Serve chilled.
