DIY, corn starch, egg yolk (or/and yellow food color), vanilla essence ...

But, you can find the powder in any DIY baking store or at least in Dihua street.

haha - this is one of the things I never fail to bring back from the UK, cos I've never seen it here. City Super is probably worth checking though, if you haven't already.

But BP is right: make your own. Homemade custard is bloody amazing (CORN STARCH?! sacrilege!), especially if you use vanilla pods instead of flavouring.

Birds custard is cornstarch :D but if you want to make custard, use flour and egg yolk, vanilla, milk, sugar (eventually some cream)

sure, I know bird's custard is just cornstarch and chemicals ... but real custard should be eggs, sugar and cream, no? I guess it depends how thick you like it.

Cornstarch or flour ... without it would be a little to runny I guess. Creme brûlée is without.
