Why You Should Make This Buttercream Crepe Cake with Lemon Curd
I just love an easy to make, no bake dessert. This beautiful cake might look fancy and that it took hours to make, but I promise it's very simple.
Remember a few weeks ago when I shared that lemon curd with you guys?
I figured there were some other ways to eat besides straight out of the jar (only half joking). And then I realized that it tastes delicious on EVERYTHING! Seriously, just about everything.
Lemon just screams spring to me. It makes me think of blooming flowers, sunshine, longer days and happier times. It's so fresh and light. And oh so perfect.
And there's fresh berries because, well, fresh berries. I may have gone a little overboard with them but in my opinion, there can never be too many.
How To Make This Buttercream Crepe Cake with Lemon Curd
Here's the deal, perfectionists might want to lighten up a bit when you make this cake. The edges are not all the same when you prepare the crepes and that's ok. I started to trim the edges of the crepes so that they were all he same size and then I gave up.
It's ok if it's not perfect. It still tastes delicious and looks pretty darn gorgeous (if I do say so myself). The most important part is that the cake tastes incredible, not how perfect the edges are.

Shhhhh….don't tell anyone but this cake might look fancy, but it's really simple to make. It'll be our secret.
Besides being incredibly delicious, it's super gorgeous too. This crepe cake is a show stopper and perfect for family gatherings for Mother's Day, Easter or any plain old brunch you have. Such a beautiful presentation.
I like to make the crepes before hand and store them in the refrigerator until I am ready to prepare the cake. I have also heard from readers that they have also bought crepes from the grocery store and prepped the rest themselves.
Whatever works! I am all for convenience.
You can also top with whatever fresh fruit you have in your house or whatever you like. I chose berries because they are not only bright and colorful, but also nutritious and healthy. They are also in season now which is another positive!
