If you know anything about Lady M in New York or LA, you know that their mille crêpes are so coveted that even if you don't have a Lady M in your city, they will personally ship to you one of their $85 mille crêpe cakes fresh to your doorstep.
But guess what Vancouver, forget Lady M because we have our very own local cake shop that's making these trendy mille crêpe cakes! Newly opened earlier this year, L'otus Cake Boutique in Richmond is creating these beautiful French delicacies right in our own city and people are already fawning over them.
If you haven't already been to the adorable cake shop, this is why you need to go:
I mean look at it! LOOK AT ALL DA LAYERS! How freaking gorgeous is this?! The mille crêpe cake name is based off of the elegant French classic "mille feuille cake" which literally means "million layer/sheets cake".
Though it's not actually a million layers, the cake is typically made with about 15 to 20 layers of crepes, with ultra smooth whipped cream laid in between each sheet. The smooth, creamy richness of these tasty gems will definitely make you feel like your eating a million bucks.
L'otus Cake Boutique is creating these gorgeous cakes in multiple flavours like their Uji Matcha (green tea), Blue Early Grey with gold flakes dusted on top (you fancy, huh), and Crème Brûlée with a caramelized finish. Each slice goes for about $8 to $14.
These cakes are so in demand that they encourage you to reserve a slice before 2PM the day of (or even a day before), and if you're looking to order an entire cake, you should defs pre-order 1-2 days prior.
But don't just stop there! They also serve a variety of pastries and cakes like their Pistachio Mousse Cake, as well as their popular Mont Blanc. And to wash it all down, they have a pretty decent selection of coffee and tea for you to sip on while you enjoy the mille crêpe main show.
So indulge yourself and hit up L'otus Cake Boutique, located at #103-8580 Cambie Rd. at Cambie Plaza. Open Tuesday to Sunday 12PM to 6PM.
