Can we start by just appreciating the beauty of this stunning mille-feuille cake? This French-pastry inspired creation looks like a million dollars but it’s easier to make than it looks! I use store-bought puff pastry, which saves a lot of time and energy! I fill the layers with a delicious home-made raspberry pastry cream and a whipped cream filling! I love adding lots of fresh berries for a fruity flavor twist!
Mille-feuille cake, also known as Napoleon cake has been around for quite some time! The word translates to ‘a thousand layers’, referring to all the thin, delicate layers in puff pastry. It’s usually made in a square pan with simple custard and cream and a chocolate glaze on top. But, I don’t like to do things ordinary, hence this version was born!
I often get asked, ‘how do you cut this cake?’. I recommend using a sharp, serrated knife for the best results. Allow the cake to chill and set in the refrigerator overnight. The chilled cake will hold its shape better and make for easier cutting.
