Wrap up the mille crepe with the 7 crepes as shown in the diagram. Use a 2 cm wide ribbon to tie them together and hold them in place, while keeping an eye on the spacing of the crepe ruffles.
I planned to layer the regular crepes, then the mille crepe, followed by the heavy cream and the fruit, but you have to undo the ribbon to cut the cake, so...
I reserved the heavy cream, then placed each slice of cake on a plate and spread it with the cream.
This makes the construction and slicing easier, and it will be delicious.
I used a 2 cm wide ribbon, but if you want a height of precisely 2 cm, then use plastic wrap for cakes cut to the same height as the ribbon.
Secure the cake with the wrap. The cake wrap will secure the frills.
I used 300 ml of heavy cream for the mille crepe and 100 ml for topping.
But you could deck out the cake and use 400 ml, go ahead! Devour the entire cake, fruits, mille crepe, crepe frills and all!
Story Behind this Recipe
I've been thinking about this design for awhile and decided to try to make it. It came out much prettier than I expected!
I use my usual crepe batter, but use whatever recipe you prefer. I used to cook them on my IH burner, but they slipped around too much in the frying pan and it was difficult to cook them, which is why I now use an iron frying pan on a gas stove!
