Tiramisu and Crepe Cake Had a Baby and We Can't Stop Swooning
It's a dessert-lover's dream come true.
(SPOT.ph) Does it get any creamier and dreamier than good ol' tiramisu? Nope, we didn't think so—its layers of mascarpone cream and coffee or kahlua-soaked ladyfingers make for a truly decadent bite, each and every time. It's great as it is, but try to imagine its signature flavors in the form of a picturesque crepe cake with soft, thin crepe layers. No need to dream, because we recently spotted a dessert that gives you exactly that: Cebu-based online seller Mille Crepe by Kari's Tiramisu Mille Crepe Cake!
With Italian Marsala wine, coffee, mascarpone and cream cheeses, crepes, and ladyfinger biscuits, the Tiramisu Mille Crepe Cake gives you the best of both dessert worlds. It's available as Mille Crepe by Kari's flavor of the month only this April—don't miss out if you're in the area! A five-inch cake goes for P400, a seven-inch cake goes for P800, and a 10-inch cake is P1,000.
Owner Karrie Yuvallos started making cakes just in December 2020, as she wanted to make a matcha cake for a friend's birthday. She scoured the Internet for ideas and decided to make a crepe cake—and after giving it to the said friend, she also gave away cakes to other friends. People then started asking if she was selling them—and proceeded to do just that. "It was just supposed to be a one-month thing since I’m an architecture student and it’s really hard to juggle a business and architectural plates, but people started to book cakes one month [in] advance for Valentine’s day," says Yuvallos in an interview with SPOT.ph. "I realized I really enjoyed making it, so I decided to follow through and invested in logo stickers, ribbons for packaging, and expanding my reach."
Aside from her rotating monthly flavors—others she's tried in the past are Red Velvet and S'Mores—her regular crepe-cake lineup includes Chocolate and Matcha variants (P400/five inches, P800/seven inches, P1,000/10 inches).
