Red Velvet Crepe Cake
Crepe cakes are all about the layers upon layers of thin crepes! I love the red velvet twist on this cake – it really makes it extra special! 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!
Whipped Cream Frosting
And to keep all those crepes together, I use a super fluffy and creamy white chocolate and cream cheese whipped cream frosting. This cream cheese 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! It’s the perfect complement to the crepes and any crepe cake recipe! If you want a more in-depth tutorial on the frosting, check out my ‘Berry Whipped Cream’ or ‘Whipped Cream Frosting’ recipes for step-by-step instructions!
This multi-layered crepe cake recipe 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!
