How to Make Durian Mille Crêpe

Mille Crêpe is a very labour intensive cake as you need to make ‘thousand’ layers of crêpe (in fact, 20 crêpes are enough). I'm making 6-inch cake for my mum's birthday 🎂

Cream base: You can use any flavor your like. You just need to whip the cream until it hold. Smash any fruits/chocolate you like and fold into the cream.

My personal feedback: I don't think mine is a successful Mille Crêpe. The crêpe itself pretty thick. It should be much thinner. And definitely is not an easy task to make a super thin crêpe.

Will I make another one? No. Haha. It took me completely 3 hours (standing, cooking, spreading). No doubt I love my crêpe batter. It taste perfect! Yummy for me. I will make a normal crêpe instead.
