Filled with whipped cream and strawberries, this fancy looking strawberry crepe cake comes together easily to make an impressive and delicious dessert.
Crepe cake, Mille crepe, whatever you know it as, this dessert will have your guests ooh-ing and aah-ing. What is it about layered cakes that just makes your heart flutter?
I think part of the reason is that we think layered cakes are a lot of work, or that they are hard to make. I wish I could tell you that this cake comes together in a snap, but, well, you gotta make all those crepe layers. That being said, this strawberry crepe cake is easy to make and totally doable!
Most crepe cakes I see around just have some sort of cream in the middle, but I wanted to make this one extra special. My husband loves strawberries, so I thinly thinly sliced strawberries and added them to every layer!
A great way to thinly and uniformly slice your strawberries is to use a mandolin. Check out the video below to see how I did it. I got mine at the 100 yen (dollar) shop in Japan, but I’m pretty sure you can find them for cheap online too.
By the way, what is it about crepes and ruining the first one? As in, whenever I make crepes, crepe cakes, anything crepe-y, my first one always goes straight into the trash. It just never turns out right! For this strawberry crepe cake recipe, there’s room for some mistakes. I tossed my first layer, and then ditched a couple others that weren’t round enough. Look how tall it is still! If it’s missing a few layers, it’ll still look great, so don’t stress too much!
Another thing? Don’t stress if your crepe isn’t a perfect circle. In the video below, you’ll see that some of my layers were a little wonky, but I think it adds to the ruffle-y look of the finished cake. Really, it’s rather forgiving, so give it a shot!
