Skittle do you mean Creme Caramel where you make your caramel pour it hot into a pyrex and then pour your custard on top then set up in the fridge?

I just melt the sugar in a sauce pan (no water as it makes finished product too runny), pour it into the baking pan for the flan, make sure it covers the bottom then let it sit while I finish making the custard. It's hard and crystalized by the time I pour in the custard. However, once it's baked, cooled, and turned out the carmel has always softened and become syrupy like it should be in flan - and I've made many of them as flan is one of Craig's favorites.

Are you letting the baked flan sit in the refrigerator until it's totally cool and then turning it out?

Ahh, good point, flan should be served warm!

No, actually in every Cuban restaurant in S Florida I've eaten at, it's served straight from the fridge.

My point in asking was if he was letting it cool and sit long enough before trying to turn out.

Could be, I've never had a cold flan or creme brulee. I'm too impatient and have to eat them as soon as possible!

No bolas, I am talking about baked flan, although that sounds good too, and I let the flan chill in the fridge for 4 hours, so it was completely cool.

I've had fresh out of the oven flan, and it is actually fabulous, but I do believe it is supposed to be served chilled ;)
