French Crepes Cake Layered With Blueberry Sauce And Topped With Mango Mousse

After so many days I am back with another recipe. I have made French Crepe Cake filled with Blubbery sauce and topped it with Mango mousse. Crepes are very popular in France, it is like a very thin pan cake that can be filled with fruits, vegetables, nutella etc etc. Crepes cake is the layers of crepes that are stuck on top of each other till it form into the shape of a cake. I used blueberry sauce to layer the cake and finally covered it with egg-less mango mousse.Tangy taste of mousse and sweet taste of blueberry complimented the taste and the cake was yum. I made this as my entry in Blogger's Buzz competition.

Blogger's Buzz is not any common virtual event, it is an "Actual" event that will take place in London on 23rd Feb 2013. We are all very excited to be a part of Blogger's Buzz and hope to have lot of fun.
