Luscious Lavender Lady M Mille Crepes Cake Through June
Every season we look forward to the fleeting magic that Lady M imparts to their limited-edition Mille Crêpes Cakes. From today through the end of June, the special flavor is lavender.
Organic lavender flowers are infused in the milk used to make the pastry cream for the Lavender Mille Crêpes Cake, made from 20 alternating layers of paper-thin, handmade French crêpes and lavender pastry cream that surround a center filling of blackberry jelly.
The organic lavender flowers and delicate piping of lavender-blackberry cream are a delicate balance of floral and fruity, a true feast for both the eyes and the palate.
With its beautiful lavender color and delicious flavor profile, the Lavender Mille Crêpes Cake is perfect for Mother’s Day and other springtime celebrations, up through Father’s Day and graduation parties.
Serve it with sparkling wine or iced tea. Here’s a recipe for lavender iced tea.
If you order the cake online, it is shipped frozen and can remain frozen for up to two months (once a cake is defrosted, it should not be re-frozen).
Fresh cakes from Lady M boutiques can last for two days.
Through May 14th only, in select boutiques and online, there’s Rose Mille Crêpes Cake, with delicate, rose-kissed pastry cream and topped with a glossy sweet rose jelly and edible rose petals (photo #4).
While there are seasonal flavors, the current roster of 9-inch Mille Crêpes Cakes includes:
You can even order a three-tier wedding cake, each layer made of “mille” crêpes.
