My blog’s four! If it was a degree, it’d be a bachelor’s! If it was a relationship, it’d be a serious one! In these four years, I’ve baked my feelings, made you brunch, drank beer with crepes, put beer in waffles, poured it over ice cream. I’ve tried to make pie without making pie. (Twice.) I’ve been super happy and super sad. I’ve met some great ladies and fellas! I just love this community. Ya’ll are inspiring! Thanks for taking the time to say hi! Now would you all just come over so I can make us mini crepe cakes, please?
Below there is a mini crepe cake for every year! I probably should’ve eaten all four. I bet that’d be the crepe equivalent to blowing out four candles, right? So one thing you should know about these is that it’s tricky to stack more than 5 if you’re putting whipped cream in the middle. (Example: bottom left leaning crepe cake.) But these guys can be so dainty! And if you pop them on a mini doily and skewer them, they’re pretty easy to transfer from platter to plate. So, yay! Let’s cake-ify brunch! Let’s eat chocolate forever! Let’s dust our berries with gold luster dust! Let’s live our lives!
