How to make Frosting :

  1. Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a heavy bottomed sauce pan or a tall pan( this is because when you cook this frosting it will rise). Stir in the brown sugar, yolks, salt and vanilla. Whisk until completely smooth (Do this before you turn on the heat.)
  2. Turn heat to medium and stir frequently until the mixture almost comes to a boil (but try not to let it boil or the yolks may curdle).
  3. After 5 minutes, turn heat to medium­low and stir nearly constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon and not run when you drag a spoon through it (don’t use your finger because this mixture is hot and will burn you). It should take about 6 to 8 minutes more, from the time you turned the heat down to reach the right consistency. It will thicken more later, when it cools.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Let cool a few minutes, but frost the completely cooled cake while the frosting is still warm. Sprinkle generous amount of grounded kanamdu(sea almond) on top and sides of cake. You can even layer the cake.
