Roast the oat flakes in a dry frying pan until golden
brown. Heat half of the sugar with 4 tablespoons water until it caramelizes.
Add the oat flakes and stir well. Allow the mixture to cool down and
crush it into small pieces. Heat 6 tablespoons of water and add the
remaining sugar, the vanilla sugar and the cream. Put this mixture in
the freezer and freeze until it becomes thick. Add the caramelized flakes
and freeze a few hours more.
