Vanilla cake:

  3.  Begin adding 70g of the sugar, one tablespoon at a time until all has been incorporated. Whisk until firm peaks are achieved
  4. In another bowl, add the egg yolks and vanilla with the rest of the sugar. Whisk this together until it lightens in color and is fluffy and airy
  5. Add the milk to the eggs and mix together lightly, then sieve in the dry ingredients
  6. Using a spatula and a folding motion, fold the flour into the yolks, but only until no dry spots remain. DO NOT OVERMIX
  7. Add a few tablespoons of the fluffy egg whites to the cake batter and then fold together until it has thinned out
  8. Fold the mixture into the rest of the egg whites until fully combined, but again DO NOT OVERMIX

  3. Pour the milk soak over the entire dish, and allow it to rest and soak in for about 2 hours
  4. While resting, make a caramel by melting the sugar in a small pot over low heat
  5. Once it begins melting stir in the remaining sugar, and then add the butter once it starts to bubble
  6. Once the butter has melted and been mixed in, stir in the cream, then turn off the heat
  7. Pour it out into a bowl and allow the caramel to cool
  8. Prepare whipped cream by whisking together the ingredients until firm peaks form (do not overmix)
