Christmas Rainbow Mille Crepe Cake

Why a White Christmas when you can have a Rainbow one?

This is a very challenging cake to do. The end result is so fulfilling and I am so happy when I see the colourful crepes. Though it was time consuming to stand by the stove to pan fried the crepes, I enjoyed every moment of it. I have always wanted to bake a Rainbow Cake as I was attracted by the multi colours. When I saw eugeniekitchen doing this, I told myself I have to give it a try.
