Custard: When making the custard cream, I used soy quark (thick dairy-free yogurt) instead of vegan cream cheese for my fruit tart to make it higher in protein and lower in fat. However, you can also fold in whipped cream to make a vanilla custard mousse or simply cook a classic vegan vanilla custard with no extras.
Cake glaze: I used this vegan cake frosting. Optionally, stir 1 tbsp cornstarch into 1 cup apple juice (or water + 2 tbsp sugar) and bring to a boil until it thickens.
