Last night was the cast party for the show I’m working on. It’s always a great time when everyone can get together and just hang out after a performance. One of the many things I love about doing theater is how the cast and crew bond so much through the rehearsal process and performances. Anyway, I volunteered to make something sweet for the occasion and I came up with this show stopping cannoli crepe cake! First, I made the crepe batter so it could rest.
While the batter rested, I quickly made the cannoli cream filling and the frosting.
The batter was rested by that point, so it was time for some crepe making! Now, I am usually not one for super specialized kitchen equipment. For my beloved crepes, I make an exception. I love my crepe pan.
With all of the components in place, it was time to bring the cannoli crepe cake together!
After it was all layered, I frosted the cannoli crepe cake gently so that I wouldn’t tear the crepes. Then I just finished it off with extra chocolate shavings and mini chocolate chips on top!
I was so relieved that it all came together fairly quickly and easily. Otherwise I was stopping at the store for cookies since there was no time to make anything else, ha! It was so decadent and definitely a hit at the party. I loved that it combined two of my great food loves…crepes and cannoli! Always keep life delicious, friends. xoxo
