Crepe Wedding Cake – an alternative wedding cake

If you are looking for an alternative wedding cake idea or are not fond of traditional wedding cake, try one of the latest trends – a Crepe Wedding Cake.  A crepe is a very thin pancake originating from Brittany in North West France but are now eaten throughout France and form the basis of Crêpe Suzette.

If you are planning your destination wedding in France any good local patisserie will be able to create the crepe cake for you.  Alternatively if you are looking to create a DIY crepe cake, bulk packets of crepes are available in supermarkets and you can make your own creme or buttercream and construct your own cake to add a little DIY french style into your wedding day.
