They also take so much time to prepare. However, most of our favorite cakes need baking.

But that is about to change.

Make sure that there are no lumps. Then, add the starch and mix again. You must eliminate the bubbles in the mixture so that your batter will be smooth.

Slowly add milk, stirring constantly.

To do this, make sure your milk is pouring out in a thin stream as you whisk.

You can cut them into smaller pieces to fill the gap and cover the entire area. If you find this a bit difficult, you can use a square mold of the same size instead.
