I planned on living my dream of making a mille crepe cake for his birthday.
He was barfing & sick on his day, and for a whole week.
I would not be thwarted. I would make it finally.
We a had a family birthday dinner for the end of the year birthday folk.
Perfect second chance.
Make regular crepes. Crepe after crepe after crepe. I think I made 30ish.
Make a custard.
the cool thing about the "cake" is you don't have to do it all at one time.
Crepe batter can be mixed & put in the fridge for a day.
Make the crepes & put them in the fridge for a day.
Make the custard & keep that in the fridge for a day or two.
then the fun part - stack & layer!
Make a chocolate ganache glaze & pour over the top.
Store in your fridge before serving.
We thought it would be tricky to slice this big guy.
It was not. It served up beautifully.
Next time I may try to cut through the stack with a glass to get mini versions like this.
Or I may try something more like Martha's dark version someday.
Or maybe a savory one for breakfast?
One thing is for sure - I making a crepe cake again.
Crepe cakes are lovely.
