Yield: Makes one 8-inch crêpe cake
Originally made famous by the Lady M Confections boutique in New York, this ethereal cake is composed of twenty paper-thin crêpes that are layered with a light vanilla-and-orange-scented cream filling. The crêpes meld with the cream, so each forkful melts in your mouth, with the subtle flavors of sweet orange and vanilla lingering behind. The top of the cake is sprinkled with sugar and caramelized with a blow torch just before serving, adding a crackly sweetness to the dessert. Like anything really wonderful, this cake takes some time to make, but once the crêpes and pastry cream are made, assembly is relatively fast. Note that a 10-inch skillet will make an 8-inch crêpe.
