All right. Last time we were having this salad. Even though you may have the excessive sorbet-dressing which you could use as a dessert later on, I still have another dessert to share.

Anyways, I hope you didn’t get a hangover. But if that happened, this delicious Mascarpone Apricot Lavender Crepe Cake would help to get over it. Because, as you may know, lavender is marvelous herb:)

So a few weeks back we were celebrating one lovely anniversary. 3 years of being married. 3 years may not sound that impressive, but believe me I’m a horrible guy so it’s hard to put up with me. Well, at least I’m an honest and humble person.

Some normal people celebrate their anniversaries outside their homes. Indeed, we did that too, a few days later. And I still had a chance to create something beautiful for that day. I’ve already introduced the salad. Sure, some excessive rum was used in daiquiri (Blackberry Peach, Strawberry Mint, and Peach Honey. I bet we had a few drinks more, but after the second one I might have experienced a blackout).

First, I was thinking about a layer cake. But I rejected this idea due to the temperature conditions, and because I often screw layer cakes. Since I hadn’t made crepe cakes for a long while, I decided on this idea. Indeed, crepe cakes are easy to make, they’re delicious, and they could be quite pretty.

Sure, I needed a sophisticated version. Sophisticated? M…such a challenge. Wait. What about lavender? Awesome idea, Ben! It’s been said you need to compliment yourself because the other people could be insensitive to do that. But I believe you’re not like that, right?

The second pick was the mascarpone cheese for being super delicate and elegant. Then I chose the honey as a sweetener because it works great with both mascarpone and lavender.

I still needed something related to summer, though! Thus, I found out my last ingredient. Sure not to mention crepes because they played the important role as well. I decided to make some kind of Apricot lavender Preserves and Mascarpone Honey Cream to have the different layers.

Remember my story with the disappeared mozzarella? I had the same issue with the apricots. On the day I was making the jam (I did it the day before), I found out that the 4 out 8 apricots had disappeared from the fridge! They were placed on the fridge shelf which is used for the ingredients I’m using in cooking. The culprit was caught and punished.

Probably, that was even better because the smaller amount of the preserves didn’t have the predominant flavor and worked nicely with the delicate cream.

But it wasn’t only one issue with the apricots. I was supposed to be cooking the preserves just for about 5-7 minutes, but I totally forgot about them. As a result, they were cooking for about 20 minutes. I was just on time when all the liquid had evaporated, but the jam didn’t start to burn out yet. Good time managing.

This Mascarpone Apricot Lavender Crepe Cake turned out great! Elegant and rich cream paired with the apricot preserves and the crepes made a scrumptious combo! I think, this pick didn’t let me down.

But I still have to practice these layer cakes.

Because next year we’re celebrating another significant anniversary, 10 years together, and I should make it.

Do you love crepes cakes? Have you ever got the ingredients you were planning to use eaten by your family? Should we introduce a strict punishment for doing that?

I’m thinking about mmmm…a lavender (surprise!) layer cake:) Do you support my idea?

    First of all, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! What day is yours?? Boy and I just had our 9th anniversary on the 10th! How cool would that be if we shared days?!

    Second, I think you are eating too much of your boozy salad dressing creations or your boozy desserts… the excessive devouring could be causing you to black out and eat cheese and apricots while you are off your rocker. That would explain all these missing ingredients!

    Third, I LOVE this crepe layer cake! Crepes are SO light and delicious! And tres sophisticated! (wink wink). Using them to layer a cake packed with mascarpone, apricot and lavender? OMG! YUMMMMM! This cake is super pretty and sounds absolutely scrumptious! Perfect to celebrate an anniversary… or just perfect because you want to eat something divine. lol. Cheers, buddy! P.S. I LOVE that we both just used mascarpone in our posts- great minds my friend!

    Happy Anniversary, Ben! But I have to take issue with the fact that you are a horrible guy. Anyone who uses edible flowers and lavender in their recipes can’t be horrible. That’s just a fact of life. I mean, look at this cake! Well done, my Canadian friend, well done!

    Oh Ben – Happy Anniversary! I bet you are not as horrible as you think you are – in fact, I am betting you are a lot nicer than you make yourself out to be! By the way – this crepe cake is a wonderful way to celebrate – way better than going out if you ask me – because I am not sure where you would find a cake as ezquisite and delicious as this! Lavender is a marvelous and mysterious herb – pairing it with apricot is brilliant!
