Birthday Cake Crepes

As prepared by tbspSusan,

The ultimate birthday cake remix! These cake-batter crepes hug ice cream centers and sport sweet frosting caps for summer birthday fun.


In my fam, we have 5 birthdays between February 17 and March 13. F.I.V.E. By the time the last one rolls around, we're about as excited about another birthday cake as we are about another Monday morning.

Next year, we're so gonna do this when the birthday cake boredom sets in. These crepes are made from thinned-down cake batter and can be made well ahead of party time. Score!

Betty Crocker makes it simp with cake mix (I used cherry chip, but you can use your fave flave), cupcake frosting (talk about a piece of cake to use!), and cookie frosting (I call it drizzle magic).

Ingredients for Cake Batter Crepes

Come'own...make 'em with me!

Mix up the Betty Crocker cake mix per the box directions. Then add a tsp of vanilla and a cup of milk to thin the batter down and make 'em smell all birthday cakey.

Heat a greased griddle (or skillet or crepe pan) to medium hot. Add 1/4 cup of the batter.

Pour Cake Batter on Hot Griddle

Swirl the batter with the measuring cup so it gets thinner and bigger.

Swirl to Make Crepe Thinner and Larger

In a move a bit diff than making pancakes, you'll want to let the crepes cook nearly all the way before flipping them...otherwise, they'll get crabby and fall apart when you flip.

Cook Crepes on Griddle before Flipping

They're delicate -- I'm not gonna lie. Take a deep breath, grab a couple of wide, thin, wide (yes I said wide twice) metal spatulas, and gently lift and flip them. Then just a minute on the other side is all it takes. Remove to a rack to cool completely.

Cool Crepes on Rack

When they're cool, stack them with wax paper or parchment paper separating them. Cover with plastic wrap, or store in an air-tight plastic container, until serving time.

Stack between Parchment Paper Sheets

Remember -- you can do that that whole part ahead of time, making this easy and fun at party time.

Then just plop one on a pretty pink party plate (that's alotta p's). Ok, the plate doesn't have to be pink, but ya gotta admit it's workin it...

Crepe Ready to Roll

Add little scoops of cake-flavored ice cream. Make sure it's cake flavored. Trust me.

Ice Cream on Crepe

So rrready to rrrock 'n rrroll! Roll it up, seam side down. Don't worry if the cake cracks a bit. You'll be covering that up with sweet stuff!

Drizzle back and forth with cookie frosting, and spritz the top with cupcake frosting. Did you know that this stuff comes in lots of colors? Pink, blue, green, chocolate. What d'ya mean chocolate isn't a color? Must've missed that memo.

Deck it and check it out!

Never let it be said that a cake is a cake is a cake. Cuz now you know that is so not truth.

Party perfect!

Birthday Cake Pancakes


If the thought of making thin crepes gives you the heebee jeebees, just use the same batter to make pancakes instead (add the 1/4 cup batter to the griddle but don't swirl it around to thin it out). Then, instead of rolling them up, just top them with ice cream and frosting. Same nom -- just simpler!
