Crêpes Cake at Lady M Confections, NYC

Crepes Cake at Lady M Boutique, NYC

Don’t you just love it when you happen to come across a place by chance that serves lovely desserts? My husband came across this dessert place called ‘Lady M Confections’ near Bryant Park, New york City recently when he was heading home. I am always up for trying new things and he wanted to surprise me by getting a sweet treat for me. So he went inside on a whim and was quite intrigued by the delectable varieties of ‘Mille Crêpes Cakes‘ that they serve.

When he asked me to open the box, I thought it was Cheesecake. But on closer inspection – I realised that it was something totally different. That is when the hubby said that they are Crêpes CakeHonestly, I haven’t had anything like this before (Please excuse my ignorance. I feel I have been living under a rock.)

Okay, so first off, who doesn’t love crepes? And when it’s a cake made out of crepes, it is sure to make you drool! So what exactly is a Mille Crêpes Cake? Mille means ‘thousand’ in French… but of course, you won’t find a thousand crepes in one slice. It is a decadent French cake consisting of 20-25 soft, thin crêpes stacked on top of each other, with a light brush of pastry cream between each crêpe.

We tried two of their Crêpes Cake – the Signature and the Green Tea Mille – both of them were not only delightfully delicious but also visually stunning! Light and airy and not overly sweet at all (something that I truly enjoy in desserts)

When you take a closer look at them, you can see the beautiful layers of crepes –

I wanted to save some so I can have them after dinner but I obviously failed. I gave into that guilty pleasure and devoured them. You will too if you try them out.

The Green Tea Cake was a little less sweet as compared to the Signature one and the flavor wasn’t too overpowering at all.

Here are a few more photos from that place that the hubby clicked – (being a food blogger’s husband, I guess he knew that I would want some pics for my blog 😀 )

I will be honest though – prices are a bit steep (Each slice was priced around $8) 

I surely wish to give the other varieties a try. You’ll probably see me there someday soon checking out some of their other cakes.😋  If desserts fancy you, I urge you to give them a try at least once when you get a chance. Bon Appetit!

    Ooh, I remember them making these as a technical challenge on British Bake-Off. Sooo complicated and time consuming, I’d definitely rather be eating them!!

        Oh gosh no – It was a challenge on the baking TV show for amateur bakers. I’m way too amateur to even attempt them!

    What a thoughtful husband you have! I have not heard of these crepe cakes before but they sure look great! I would probably enjoy them too since I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.

    Just looking at the pictures made me hungry and wish I could have a slice. It looks so divine and delicious. I can’t blame you for not being able to save some for dinner. I probably would have done the same thing; especially if it’s that delicious. 😛 Thanks to your hubby for taking pictures. He did a great job. I prefer the signature crepe cake though, especially you mentioned that it’s not that sweet. 🙂 I’m inspired to make one for my family to try. Thanks for sharing SN. 🙂
