How to Proceed ?

I missed a vital part of this problem, and chose a wrong solution.

I did, in fact, see part of the solution, but since I didn't recognise the concept, naturally I failed to solve it.

My solution would, if this was a real game, have put me in a more-or-less equal position, but there is more to be gained from it...

Once you see that the king is trapped, the moves flow naturally. Now mix them up to bring them into the correct order and you are done. :-)

All true. For me, the mixing was the issue. A mis-placed move and my cake was only acceptable, not perfect !
