Pastry cream powder is used to thicken custards. It's made of cornstarch and a bit of vanilla flavoring. Sometimes with some color too. If you an find custard powder, use that instead. Otherwise substitute cornstarch.

I believe custard powder is cornstarch and vanilla flavoring, whereas pastry cream powder also contains dried eggs.
