100 Layer Crepe Cake Recipe

100 layer cake how to cook that

One hundred layers of crepes stacked with mascarpone cheese, raspberry sauce and ganache. Sometimes trends on youtube get a little crazy. The one hundred layers trend all started with a young lady putting on over 100 layers of nail polish on her nails. Because that video had a ridiculous amount of views everyone jumped onto the bandwagon with 100 layers of foundation and anything else you can think of. Most of these challenges result in an incredible waste of products. So when requests came in for 100 layers I was determined to make something sweet and yummy.

To make this 100 layer crepe cake you will need:


The Deep Enders book
Crepe Recipe

This amount fits in my blender and makes enough for 25 crepes, to make 100 you need to make this four times over. Or if you’d prefer more filling between your crepes make this only once and spread the fillings liberally.

8 eggs
1/4 cup or 55g (1.94 ounces) sugar
1/2 cup or 110g (3.88 ounces) butter
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups or 1L (0.26 gallons) milk (4% fat)
2 1/2 cups or 400g (14.11 ounces) flour

Place all ingredients into the blender and blitz until smooth.

Raspberry Sauce Recipe
6 cups or 840g (29.63 ounces) frozen raspberries
juice of 1 lemon
4 Tbsp or 52g (1.83 ounces) sugar

Heat the raspberries and lemon juice until the fruit falls apart.
Push through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. Add sugar to taste and heat to dissolve sugar.

Ganache Recipe
700g (24.69 ounces) milk chocolate
360mL (12.17 fluid ounces) cream (35% fat)

Pour the cream over the chocolate and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until you have a smooth ganache.

750g (26.46 ounces) mascarpone cheese

Chocolate Buttercream to cover (optional)

Assemble following the directions on the video to make this huge stack of crepes.

    Just finished making this!! 23 layers instead of the full hundred, but still it turned out lovely!! If anyone wants some design tips I added some mushrooms made of merengues, dusted them with cocoa powder and dusted powdered sugar beneath to look like spores, and added some moss with intentionally-too-liquidy green buttercream. Very proud of this one, love these more unique cake recipes :3

    Hi i love your cooking channel. You’re literally the only baking channel i watch (that i trust). I was wandering since i’ve always loved crepes as a little kid. i was wondering if you could give me a simplified recipe of your crepes. Because there is no way i will make 25 let alone 100 XD. I just want to make 10 crepes for me and my family but all the other baking/cooking channels i’ve watched were really confusing, could you please send me an easy crepe recipe please XD !
