It’s magic when you combine two favorites: crepes and cake. No wait… make that three favorites. Crepes, cake, and chocolate.
I was talking with my grandmother, planning a small get-together with some of the ladies in our family the day after Thanksgiving to celebrate my cousin’s 16th birthday. Before we knew when we would have this party, we knew a chocolate cake had to be involved. We soon found out that the best time for everyone was brunch, so we thought crepes.
Crepes and chocolate cake aren’t typically offered in the same meal so… I decided it was time to combine the two.
Don’t be fooled by it’s light-hearted, fun, happy-go-lucky appearance. This cake is WORK. Making 30+ crepes (I lost count) is time consuming and trying, but I promise you will perfect your crepe technique by the time you’re done. Plus, any of the crepes that don’t look as nice can be stacked in the middle of the cake and you won’t even notice.
By the end I was flipping crepes in the pan, no spatula needed. I felt like a chef in a fast-paced kitchen. Despite the time it takes to make, I will absolutely be making this cake again.
Also – this tablecloth is $3.49 at Target. We didn’t get up from the table at all – we (adults!) all sat and colored the entire time. I might go buy 10 so I have a constant stash of them.
