Lady M’s Elegant Mille Crepes Cakes For St. Patrick’s Day

For almost 20 years, we have been fans of Lady M cakes. The luxury confections brand, famous for its signature Mille Crêpes Cakes, opened its first New York City cake boutique in 2004, and we were in line waiting for our slice.

There are cakes for every palate and every season. If you’re looking for a luxurious St. Patrick’s Day dessert or gift, there are even three green cakes.

  • Green Tea Mille Crêpes Cake. Green tea is infused into every aspect of this cake, which features 20 layers of handmade crêpes filled with green tea pastry cream and finished with Japanese powdered matcha (photo #1). Order yours here.
  • Pistachio Mille Crêpes Cake. Its 20 crêpe layers are filled with velvety pistachio pastry cream and finished with a spin of pistachio pastry cream and crushed pistachios (photo #2). Order yours here.
  • Green Tea Mousse Cake. A delicate green tea sponge cake is filled with light green tea mousse and covered with whipped cream and a fine dusting of green tea cake crumbs (photo #3). Order yours here.
    If you can’t use a whole cake, look for a Lady M boutique near you and treat yourself to a slice or two.

    While there are seasonal flavors, the current roster of 9-inch Mille Crêpes Cakes includes:

  • Chocolate Mille Crêpes Cake
  • Dulce de Leche Mille Crêpes Cake
  • Earl Grey Mille Crêpes Cake
  • Green Tea Mille Crêpes Cake
  • Pistachio Mille Crêpes Cake
  • Signature Mille Crêpes Cake (vanilla)

    There are seasonal flavors: Chestnut for the holidays, Champagne for the new year, Passion Fruit for the summer, and so on. Keep checking and you may find Purple Yam, Red Bean, and Salted Caramel.

    For spring, the seasonal flavors include Sesame Ti Kuan Yin Tea Mille Crêpes.

    You can even order a three-tier wedding cake, each layer made of “mille” crêpes.
    > The history of cake and the different types of cakes.

    Lady M is a New York City maker of luxury confections, with more than 50 boutiques worldwide. Established in 2001, Lady M is the creator of the world-famous Mille Crêpes Cake.

    One of Lady M’s founders, Emi Wada, invented the Mille Crêpes Cake and sold them in her Paper Moon Cake Boutiques in Japan beginning in 1985.

    The Mille Crêpe Cakes she created consist of 20 thin handmade crêpes layered with light pastry cream and topped with a caramelized crust.

    Lady M marries French pastry techniques with Japanese sensibilities, resulting in delicate cakes that are a touch sweet and beautiful to look at.

    In 2001, Wada helped found Lady M as a wholesale business delivering cakes to hotels and restaurants in New York City. By 2004, the Lady M cakes had become so popular that the company decided to open a store in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

    Wada later relinquished ownership of Lady M so she could concentrate on business back home in Japan.

    Today there are seven boutiques in the greater New York City area, more than 50 worldwide, and a thriving online business.

    All cakes are handmade and prepared fresh without food additives or preservatives. The crêpes cakes are a very special treat, although Lady M makes a variety of delectable cakes and confections. Learn more at
