How to Make Happy Birthday Crepes

To start, add the eggs, milk, vanilla, and sugar into a large bowl, and combine, until lightened smooth.

Whisking the ingredients together.

First, whisk in the flour until there are no more lumps and it’s smooth. In addition, allow the battery to rest for 20 minutes. It is more and more for bubbles to form at the top of the batter.

Secondly, separate the crepe batter into 5 small bowls.

Thirdly, begin adding each of the food coloring gel colors into separate bowls. You should have 5 different color batters.

All of the food gel in the batter.

Next, prepare the crepe maker by setting the temperature too low and when it’s hot, you add one tablespoon of butter until melted to create a nonstick surface.

Furthermore, once the butter is melted, you will add 1/4 cup of batter and spread it out into a thin layer using either the crepe maker tools or the back of a spoon.

To finish, you will allow the crate to cook for three minutes, then flip to the other side to cook for an additional minute.

Finally, take the crepe off of the maker, using a crepe tool, and place it on a plate or sheet of parchment paper. Repeat this process until all of the better has been made.

Filling:

To start, add the cream cheese and heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl of a standing mixer and combine until smooth and creamy.

Next, add in the sugar, powdered sugar, Birthday cake flavoring, and vanilla and combine, until smooth.

Finally, you can place the filling in the fridge until you have made all of your crepes.

Assembling the Crepes:
To start, you will need to lay your crepes flat on a surface.

First, you will place 2 tablespoons of the filling into the middle of the crepe and smooth out evenly with a spoon or spatula.
Secondly, you can talk the filling with sprinkles and using your hands or a spatula, fold the crepe in half and then fold again.
Next, place each of the finished crepes onto a serving plate, stacking about two or three on each.
To finish, top with a bit more sprinkles if desired.
Serve and Enjoy!

How to Store Leftover Crepes?

Storing the crepes in an airtight container will be the best method. The crepes can be store in the fridge for about 3 days. You will want to layer the crepes with parchment paper or wax paper once they’re cooled and place them into your container.

Tips for Making Crepes:

There are some simple and easy tips to follow to master the art of a perfect crepe. You can start off by allowing your batter to rest before cooking them. There are two methods of cooking crepes, one is in a frying pan and the other is in a crepe pan. The latter is the best method for a great crepe. While making your crepe you will want to use fats to keep the crepes from sticking as well as using a rubber spatula so they don’t break too easily.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the Eggs, Milk, Vanilla and Sugar, until light and smooth.  Add the flour, and whisk until any lumps disappear, or the batter is smooth.  Let batter sit for 20 minutes.  Bubbles will form on the top, that's normal. Divide the Crepe Batter evenly between 5 small bowls.  Add the Food Coloring Gel colors to the bowls; You'll have 5 different colors of Batter.  Turn Crepe Maker onto the low setting, and when hot, add the Tablespoon of Butter and melt on the non-stick surface.  When Butter has melted, add 1/4 cup of the Crepe Batter, and spread the Batter out thin on the Crepe Maker - either using the Crepe Maker tools (see link), or the back of a spoon.  This will make the Crepe Batter thin.  Cook the Crepe for about 3 minutes, then flip the crepe and cook for another minute on the other side.  Remove the Crepe with the Crepe tool to a plate, or a piece of Parchment paper, or Silpat.  Continue until all batter has been used.

Make the Filling:

  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, mix the Cream Cheese, and Heavy Whipping Cream, until smooth and creamy.  Add the Sugar, Powdered Sugar, Birthday Cake Flavoring, and Vanilla, and blend until smooth.  Place the Filling in the refrigerator until time to fill the Crepes.

TO FILL THE CREPES:

  • With the Crepes laying flat, add about 2 Tablespoons of the filling to the center of the Crepe, and smooth out evenly.  Sprinkle the Confetti Sprinkles on top of the cheesecake filling.  Fold the crepe in half, and then in half again. Place on a serving plate, stacking two or three Crepes on the plate.  Add a few more sprinkles on top of the Crepes.  Serve, and Enjoy!
