“Crepe” Cakes – How Cool Looking Is That?!?!

I told myself that I wasn’t going to make any sweets this weekend. Not that I don’t crave them daily. I just thought I’d spend the time cleaning instead of making another mess. Well, that went out the window as soon as I looked through my June/July issue of Taste of Home Magazine. They had a Red Velvet Crepe Cake that looked so cool. I just had to see if I could make it.

I’m not much of a Red Velvet cake person (sorry.) So I used what I had. A white cake mix and milk chocolate frosting. How easy is that!

  • Make the cake mix according to the package.
  • Heat a lightly greased skillet over medium heat.
  • Add 1/4 cup of cake batter into skillet.
  • Lift and tilt pan to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Cook until top appears dry, turn and cook another 15 – 20 seconds.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Now frost a Cake “crepe” and add another cake “crepe” and repeat. You can make it as tall as you would like.

Pretty cool looking, don’t you think?

  11. oh my gosh, this is wonderful! what a great idea!! thanks so much!

  12. As usual a home run with my critters! I have come to enjoy each and every visit to your site [tho admittedly it wreaks havoc with my weight watchers plan when I am tempted by the treat]. You have such variety of choices on your site that I was delighted to name you for an award on my blog last Saturday. I see now, that you were given a different version of the award previously, but I hope that nonetheless you will stop by my blog and pick up the new icon and add it to you site and share it. If actresses can earn two Oscars, why can’t bloggers get to VBs??? I hope new people find you each and every day and enjoy you as I have!
