Sonja's Pear Cake

My Norwegian friend Sonja brought this wonderful pear cake to our First Annual Single Mother's Day barbecue yesterday. Absolutely delicious and amazingly easy to make.

Start off with a storebought flan and put it on a pretty cake plate. Soak the flan with the some of the juice from a can of pears. Dice the pears pile on the flan. Using lightly sweetened stiffly whipped cream build up the cake to make straight sides and a flat top. For the icing: melt semisweet chocolate (however much you want) and add a bit of milk. Pour all over the cake and spread so that it drips over the edge.
