Whisk in half of cold milk.
Place pan over medium heat and cook until thickened, about 12 minutes, whisking constantly and gradually adding remaining milk as custard thickens (custard will resemble sabayon because of incorporation of air when whisked).
Cool 1 hour.
Blend in vanilla, cardamom and salt.

Blend in Kirschwasser.
Gently fold cream into cooled custard.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour, or overnight.
