This Lavender Honey Crêpe Cake is a delightful way to enjoy a delicate flavor of lavender.
“Happy” Monday, my friends (Do you hear my skepticism?) I hope this week will be treating you well. But honestly, I’m already ready for a new weekend.
Apart from Mondays, we’ve got to have a very serious conversation, my friends. So please take a seat and grab a slice of this delicate Lavender Honey Crêpe Cake (Because, well, I’m going to ask you a very hard question which might upset both sides.)
Have you guys noticed it’s almost end of March? Well, wrong question.
Have you guys noticed it’s almost end of March, and this is the first lavender recipe I’ve posted this year? WOW.
I believe you have. You couldn’t miss this. Thus, there’s my reasonable question. Have you been wondering why it’s happening? Any thoughts? Concerns? Questions like “Ben, there are your fabulous lavender recipes?” Fears? That I might have been run out of all lavender.
There’s even the worse scenario. You might be happy about me not posting lavender recipes. Oh, I know these outrageous shenanigans!
All right, calm down, Ben!
Grrr, I need a slice of cake now.
Lavender Honey Crêpe Cake
But the truth is that I’ve pulled lavender from the pantry only twice this year (The 2nd recipe will be posted shortly). But in case you’ve been wondering – nope, I didn’t run out of the lavender. I’m going to prove it soon.
I’ve made this Lavender Honey Crêpe Cake cause apparently I’m having a kick on crepe cakes (You might have seen this Red Velvet Crepe Cake and this Dulce de Leche Irish Cream Crêpe Cake). Also, although I incorporated lavender in another crepe cake two years ago, it had a very subtle lavender flavor.
When I was planning this Lavender Honey Crêpe Cake, I was trying to find an idea for the frosting rather that mascarpone. Ultimately I opted for…mascarpone because you cannot go wrong with this decadent cheese. Besides, just I couldn’t find the better solution.
Certainly, thanks to mascarpone and white chocolate, this dessert isn’t the skinniest one, but what would you anticipate from a crepe cake, eh?
As the result, this Lavender Honey Crêpe Cake turned out perfect. The combo of lavender and honey always works well because honey balances the visible lavender aroma. Well, the lavender flavor is still distinctive but isn’t overpowering here. It might be the perfect treat for those who have been thinking of trying something for the first time.
I hope you’ll try this cake one day. And if you are guilty of not missing my lavender recipes, well…please give me your mailing address, and I’ll send 3 these cakes as your punishment.
