  2. Once tortilla begins  to brown, about 10 to 15 seconds, remove from ladle and flip  tortilla over. Continue to cook for 5  to 10 more seconds. Repeat  this method with the remaining tortillas. Let tortillas drain,  upside-down, until ready to assemble.
  3. Prepare the “Vanilla Custard,” “Cajeta,” and “Hot Fudge Sauce”  recipes  before assembling the tostada cups.
  4. Combine fruit in a bowl and gently mix. Evenly distribute fruit into  the  six tostada shells. Ladle 3 to 4 ounces of the Vanilla Custard  mix over the fruit, filling tostada to 1/4 inch below the rim.
  5. Brown  top of custard  under a broiler or use a propane torch.
  6. Ladle 2-3 ounces of cajeta onto each plate. Place tostada in the  middle of the plate and drizzle with hot fudge. Garnish each tostada  with a mint  sprig and serve.
