Mille Crepe

I first learned about Mille Crepe when I watched the anime Yumeiro Patissiere.
I thought I'd make one for Amado's birthday this week.
This cake is my practice cake, hopefully the one for his birthday turns out even better.
The cake itself is very tedious to make. The crepe batter needs a few hours to set.
Definitely dedicate an hour or two to make the batter and crepe and another hour or two
to put the cake together.





Mille Crepe isn't too sweet by itself so its good to pair with a sauce or a simple
fruit jelly and powdered sugar.


The recipe for Mille Crepe can be can be found here.

A few suggestions:
- make sure not to over cook the vanilla creme. It should have a thick consistency that will be later on be lightened when the whipped creme is folded in.
- the recipe/instruction did not mention how to incorporate the butter in to the vanilla creme,
the butter should be melted.
- the crepe batter made about 30 crepes using an almost filled 1/3 measuring cup and a 9-inch pan.
