Personal notes:

IMG_6614– jacky bear’s face is piped using melted chocolate after cake has been assemble
– i did not have a 20cm spring foam pan, so i assembled my cake on a cake platter and then wrapped the circumference of the crepe cake carefully and tightly with cling wrap. this way, i get a very round shaped crepe cake

IMG_6616my maid did not know where to start cutting the crepe cake from… i wonder if the left cheek taste as good as the right (◎_◎;)
