LOL! I'm going to be making at least a 30 layer crepe cake called a Mille-Fleur. It will have chocolate crepes with a hazelnut creme filling in each layer topped with a chocolate ganache. And if I have time, maybe a croquembouche if I feel adventurous.

Endings are the saddest part.
So just give me a happy middle

So, I won't be bringing a dessert....

I read it at first as though the cake will have at least 30 layers. Go for 40 layers. Why stop at 30? :lol:

It is I think.

Crepes are a French (but thicker) version of Phyllo dough, maybe 1/8" thick. They are often layered just like Phyllo is for a flaky texture.

Think of thick Baklavah dough, or a pastry tortilla. Baklavah is often 40 layers.... while only ending up 2" tall. ;)

Yeah, I know all about crepes. I only meant the wording at first had me thinking she might not stop at 30 layers.

LOL guys! I'm going to make as many crepes as the batter allows me to make. And of course, I won't be including the ones that I mess up!

You guys are now starting to make me feel the pressure of making this dessert! I hope that I don't disappoint. :shock:
