[theme music] I love dessert. And there is no better
dessert than a crepe cake from Lady M Cake Boutique. The flavors of
cakes are so unique. Whether it’s matcha
flavored or just chocolate, I know the crepe cakes
will hit the spot, which is why I decided to
make a Lady-M-inspired crepe cake at home. So what we have here
is the crepe batter. And a crepe batter is very
similar to a pancake batter, it just has a lot
more eggs in it. And this is a big batch. This is a batch that is big
enough to make about 25 crepes. I put one ladleful in,
and then tilt the pan, coating the whole bottom of it. The first couple
of these crepes are going to look kind of rough,
because that’s just what it is. Anyone who’s made
pancakes knows this. So do not lose heart
if the first one doesn’t look completely right. I have two little tools here. I have my metal spatula and
a tiny little rubber spatula. So I use the tiny rubber spatula
just to kind of lift them up, so that this guy can slide
underneath without breaking any edges. The first time I saw a crepe
cake was actually on Pinterest. And I thought it
just was so cool. I actually thought that
it was a normal cake where someone had really
thinly sliced the layers. And I thought, oh my
gosh, that sounds so intimidating and challenging. But when I realized
it was a crepe cake, I thought, oh my gosh. That’s super doable. Today’s flavor is going to be
caramel apple, which I love. I think it’s such a classic. But the cool thing
about a crepe cake is you can actually
kind of do any flavor combination you like. Our crepes are finished. They’ve fully cooled. So it’s time to put
everything together. Making the apple puree
could not be simpler. It’s just roasted apples
pureed with a little bit of lemon juice,
cinnamon, and sugar. Blend it all together and you
have a perfect apple puree. We have our salted
caramel sauce, and this is super
simple, as well. Just caramelize sugar with a
little bit of cream and butter added, and then, of course,
a healthy pinch of salt. I’m just going to
take this first crepe. Add a layer of stuff, and then
add another crepe, more stuff, and just basically
keep going until I feel like it’s high enough. All right. So I’m going to first put a
nice pile of the apple on top. You just push everything
to the outer edges, just so it peeks through. I’m going to move on to my
next layer, a tiny amount of the salted caramel,
because I actually want to save quite a bit
of this to drizzle on top. I’m just going to sort
of smooth this around. Another crepe, and then
I’ll do a few tablespoons of mascarpone cheese. And then I just repeat this
whole process basically however high I want it to go. Gorgeous. OK. I wanted to show
you guys something. So you can see on this
side it looks fine, but it’s sort of
missing some pizzazz. So if you look over here– what? You can see that by pushing all
the ingredients at the edges, it’s a sneak peek for
people looking at the cake to know what flavors are in it. So the last final
touch is adding the salted caramel on top. I’m so excited about this. And I’m actually going to go
out and create, on purpose, little rivers. I don’t want a swimming
pool of caramel on top. So I just have this
amount here, and I’m just going to spread it out. Then I’m going to finish
it with some sea salt. Look at those layers. That is amazing. Mmm. Sorry, I just did a little
crepe dance, but you’ve got to. It’s so good. [theme music]
