Nutella Crepe Cake, for his 30th!!!

If you follow me on instagram and facebook you would have got a glimpse of the cake that I made for the huss for his 30th birthday. I wanted to surprise him and I was browsing for ideas in pinterest and the crepe cake kinda caught my attention. Its something that I have never tried before and I knew that the 30 layers would definitely surprise him. I first thought of using white chocolate ganache because the huss adores white chocolate but since the crepes are plain I was doubtful on the flavor combination and so I settled for nutella.

I wouldn't say that the cake is a breeze to make cos you have to make 30 perfect crepes then layer it with a thin coating of frosting taking care not to break the fragile crepes and then frost the whole thing patiently. But trust me its worth all the effort. The melt in the mouth crepes with that smooth and creamy ganache is definitely gonna bowl over the person for whom you are making this and not to forget the surprise that he is in for when cuts through the cake.

~*What U Need*~
For the crepes ~ adapted from Alton Brown
Large eggs - 2
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Milk - 3/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Butter - 3 tbsp, melted
Sugar - 2 1/2 tbsp
Vanilla - 1 tsp

For the Nutella Gananche ~ my own recipe
Nutella - 118 g
Semi sweet chocolate - 82 g
Heavy cream - 110 g

How I Made it:
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for 10 seconds. Refrigerate the batter for 1 hour. Heat a small non stick skillet on medium high and butter the pan. Pour 1/8 cup of the batter into the centre of the pan and swirl to spread the batter evenly. Cook for 30 seconds and flip. Cook for another 10 seconds. Remove the crepes and leave them to cool on a wire rack. chopping board. Once cooled, you can stack them in ziplock bags and store it in the fridge for several days.

For the ganache, combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat till the chocolate and nutella melts. Cool and use it in between the crepes like frosting and cover the sides of the crepe cake. Let the cake chill till needed and decorate as needed before serving.

Cut and serve!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
