Blancmange. Fail.

Not sure what happened, whether it was not quite enough time in the fridge (although it had more than the 6 hours suggested) or something went wrong at the milk boiling/whisking stage. There were more solid sections in it and it tasted great, but the texture is all wrong! I had a pig mould to use - there was the vaguest approximation of a pig's face when we first turned it out, but by the time I got the camera, this had happened...

Need to find out how to improve it and try again. It's certainly not going in my Flickr baking folder until it can hold its own shape!

Would definitely say whisk by hand rather than an electric whisk, otherwise you can't feel if it's thickening?

I thought I had strained the mix by the time the whisking was necessary, too.
