It's well worth the time to make this beautiful and delicious cake. Each moist layer is separated by a rich and creamy filling. Treat your family on special occasions with this cake. —Crystal Heaton, Alton, Utah
- 1 package red velvet cake mix (regular size)
- 2-3/4 cups whole milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 large eggs
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 packages (8 ounces each ) cream cheese, softened
- 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 12 cups confectioners' sugar
- 5 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Fresh blueberries
- In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, milk, flour, eggs, egg yolks, butter and vanilla; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
- Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 1/4 cup batter into center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
- For frosting, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and salt until fluffy. Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth.
- To assemble two crepe cakes, place one crepe on each of two cake plates. Spread each with one rounded tablespoon frosting to within 1/2 in. of edges. Repeat layers until all crepes are used. Spread remaining frosting over tops and sides of crepe cakes. Garnish with blueberries. Yield: 2 crepe cakes (8 servings each).
