Bring to a boil, pour into the bowl of an electric mixer, and mix until cool. Cover with plastic wrap placed directly on the cream, and refrigerate.
Step 2: Making the ladyfinger cake layer
Sift flour and corn starch together.
Beat the egg whites until peaks form, then add sugar little by little to stiffen the peaks. Delicately fold in the egg yolks using a rubber spatula, then fold in the sifted flour and cornstarch.
Spread this batter onto a baking sheet and bake until browned in a 392°F (200°C) convection oven. Cool on a rack.
