We Are So Martha Crepe Cake

Jennie was telling me about crepe cakes one day and the very next day, Martha was making one on TV!  Of course we had to give it a go.  I mean, yes, it's a lot of work, but, the payoff???  Soooo worth it!

We used our vanilla pudding recipe here:  St. Joseph's Day Treat Vanilla Pudding

And our crepe recipe here:  Holy Crepe

We ran the cooled pudding through the Kitchenaid with a whisk. It did not whip but it was smooth.

We doubled the crepe recipe and made them in a larger pan. We lined them up in a single layer on foil to cool.

When the crepes are cooled you can begin!  Layer about one heaping tablespoon of pudding between the layers and we had exactly enough pudding for the number of crepes we got!  Meant to be.

Team effort made this easy.  I made the pudding the day before since it must be cold to assemble the cake.  I ladled the crepe batter while Jennie swirled the pan and did the delicate flipping.  Even my Bub got in on the action.

Once the crepes are completely cooled, start the layering process on a large platter.  You can finish with ganache on top or vegan whipped cream if you know of any.  We are in love with the crispy crepe edges and liked the top to simply be a crepe.

Happy Holidays!
