mille feuille cake wth custard filling and berries

Berries and Cream Mille-Feuille Cake


Can we start by just appreciating the beauty of this stunning berries and cream mille-feuille cake? This French-pastry inspired creation looks like a million dollars but it’s easier to make than it looks! For my version, 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 French 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. This berries and cream version is amazing! The raspberry pastry cream filling adds loads of berry flavor, perfectly complemented by all the added berries.

I often get asked, ‘how do you cut this cake?’. First, allow the cake to set overnight in the refrigerator. The chilled cake will hold its shape better and make for easier cutting. I recommend using a sharp, serrated knife for the best results. You can either cut the cut with all the layers in place, or you can take the layers off one at a time and slice that way.
