When my kids were back the last trip, we had this homemade green tea crepe cake for dessert. This green tea crepe cake was made by my daughter-in- law , Elaine . I asked her to try Martha Stewart's crepe recipe. I prepared the batter for the crepe and she does the rest. From making the crepes to the assembling of the crepe cake. Great bonding time for the whole family. From making to eating the crepe cake. I look forward to another great time baking and cooking with my girls :) And thank you Elaine, despite being tired, made this crepe cake for all of us to enjoy :)
Elaine gave me a jar of green tea powder from Korea and we used the green tea powder for making the green tea cream filling....it was the most delicious crepe cake I have eaten thus far. The color of the green tea did not come out well in the photos . The crepes were soft and delicious. And the fragrant of green tea in the whipped cream makes it even more delicious. I have KIV this crepe cake for my coming birthday...maybe this time with durian cream filling :) I am salivating just thinking of it.
you need to know the technique of making crepe using a non-stick crepe pan
and Elaine nailed it :)
the crepe is really soft
beautiful crepes ....
due to poor photography on my part, the color of the green tea cream
did not come out as green....
it need skill to apply the cream layer by layer, if not, the whole cake will be
lob sided..again Elaine nailed it !
it is level and a few more layers to go....
chill it before serving
the most delicious crepe cake I have eaten
