Dark Chocolate Crepe Cake

This crepe cake was specially make for my hubby birthday. Though I used to bake, my hubby hardly eat my bakes as he is not a person who likes to eat cakes, pastry or cookies stuff. He is a typical chinese guy who love chinese food. And you will be suprised that this is the first time I baked a birthday cake for him. Since he love Haagen Dazs Chocolate Ice Cream, so I have decided to bake a chocolate crepe cake instead. Am so happy that he liked it very much.
