Let the cake cool in the pans for 10 minutes.

Now run a butter knife around the circumference of the cake to release it.

Now invert the cakes on the cooling rack to cool completely.

Loosely cover the cakes with a kitchen towel to prevent drying out.

While the cake is baking, whisk pudding ingredients together into a smooth paste.

Add more sugar if the mixture isn't sweet.
