2. Cut the pears into thin slices and alternate them in layers with the sugar in a 9 or 10 inch (24 cm) pan lined with baking paper.
Put them in the preheated oven to 360°F (180°C) for an hour and a half. They will leave juice, but don’t panic, it’s normal. After the time has passed, let them temper exactly as they were in the pan in which they were baked.

Meanwhile, until the milk boils, mix the egg yolks with the corn starch and the rest of the milk.

11. When the milk starts to boil, pour over the egg yolk mixture and mix vigorously.
Pour the whole composition back into the pot and cook over low heat until it thickens, stirring continuously.

12. Take it off the heat and let it cool to room temperature, stirring from time to time so it doesn’t curdle.
Incorporate the hydrated and melted gelatin, mixing quickly to avoid lumps. Then we gradually incorporate the whipped cream into the vanilla cream, mixing gently with a spatula.
Take 7-8 spoons of the cream and put it aside, you will use it at the end.

13. Put the cake over the pear layer, and remove the baking paper.

14. Take a round 10 inch (24 cm) pan with ring and swap the cake and pears from the other pan, so that you have the pears on top and the cake on the bottom.
This way the cake will become syrupy from the extra juice left by the pears.
Close the ring around the cake with pears and squeeze it so that it becomes uniform. Pour the cream, and level it.

15. Put the 7-8 spoons in a bag and decorate the cake. I also put a few slices of dried pears. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, then cut and serve.
