Hope you had a lovely weekend!
Has anyone been in the kitchen lately, cooking, baking, trying new recipes?
I know I haven’t… but if it’s one thing I want to make (well, more like eat right about now), it’s the crepe cake, or known as “Mille Crêpes” in French. It is a decedent, classic French cake consisting of 20 layers of paper thin crepes, each separated with a brush of French pastry cream… it’s delicious. I didn’t think it at first, but I found myself craving for it after I had it the first time. This cake is the signature dessert at Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon in New York and you will find the recipe for it at the end of this post.
For Canadian fans, you can order it and have it shipped to you: http://lady-m-canada.myshopify.com/
It’s worth it! I’ve tried the mille crepe at various places around the GTA, but it still doesn’t compare to that of Lady M’s.
Recently. I tried a sweet potato one with homemade black sesame ice cream at: Green Tea Lounge
If you go to Millie’s Creperie at Kensington Market (Toronto), they have it too, available in two flavours: original (vanilla) and green tea.
I had also written about a mango one I had at Zen Cafe.
There’s a “Matcha Red Bean” version at one of my favourite bubble tea places. Green Grotto. Didn’t have a chance to try it out yet because I only saw it advertised as I was leaving. But will likely give it a go next time!
Here’s the recipe for the Mille Crepe if you’re eager to make it yourself:

Have a great week everyone! I can’t wait to hear about your holiday plans and see how you’re all putting together your holiday looks. I have a pink tutu and felt that Art in the Find gave a lot of helpful ideas of how to style an outfit with it among many other holiday party outfits. Thanks Art in the Find! 🙂
