Red Velvet Crepe Cake


Get yourself ready for the most stunning, festive crepe cake ever! This red velvet crepe cake is a true show-stopper!

I garnished the top with drizzled white chocolate, loads of berries and additional whipped cream for the ultimate presentation. Every bite of this crepe cake is light, airy and absolutely delicious. I love that it’s not too sweet so you can truly enjoy a large slice of this epic cake and not feel overwhelmed!

This multi-layered crepe cake starts with easy and delicious red velvet crepe batter, made with a hint of chocolate thanks to chocolate liqueur and cocoa powder. If you don’t want to add alcohol to the batter (it will cook out!), add 1/4 cup (50 g) white granulated sugar and an additional 2 tablespoons cocoa powder to the batter. Make sure to add lots of red food coloring for brightly colored crepes! Then all those delicate crepes are layered with an equally delicate white chocolate cream cheese whipped cream frosting. This frosting is the bomb!! You will literally want to eat it by the spoonful, it’s soo good! I want to eat this frosting with every dessert!

The history of the original red velvet cake can be traced back to the 1920’s, when this cake was served in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York. Housewives picked up the recipe and began serving it for Christmas and Valentine’s Day. The color of the cake comes from cocoa powder and red food coloring, which lends this cake that deep rich red mahogany color. A cake that has been around for almost a hundred years deserves a special place in every baker’s kitchen. This red velvet crepe cake is a unique and delicious reinterpretation!
