Crêpe Cake.

One of my all time favorite bakeries in New York is Lady M Cake Bakery on the Upper East Side.  Home to the famous "Mille Crêpe Cake" if I am within five blocks I am bound to stop in and pick up a slice.  Yesterday I had a little free time, and was dying to make a good dessert for a friend of mine who stopped by but I didn't have time to run to the store to get ingredients.  This turned out to be a perfect easy solution. I substituted simple vanilla infused whipped cream for the pastry cream and although my cake did not turn out looking as perfect as theirs do, it was the perfect compliment to great conversation and iced tea with a good friend.
