For the Cream Filling:

  • Whipping Cream: 20 1/4 fluid ounces
  • Sugar: 6 tablespoons
  • Vanilla Extract: 2 teaspoons

For the Crepes:

  • All-Purpose Flour: 11 3/4 ounces
  • Potato Starch: 4 1/4 ounces
  • Sugar: 2 3/4 ounces
  • Milk: 30 1/4 fluid ounces
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 teaspoon
  • Food Coloring: Pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
  • Vegetable Oil or Cooking Spray: For cooking


  1. Prepare the Cream Filling:
    • In a large bowl, combine the whipping cream and sugar.
    • Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
    • Mix in the vanilla extract and set aside in the refrigerator.
  2. Make the Crepe Batter:
    • In a separate large bowl, whisk together the flour, potato starch, and sugar.
    • Gradually add the milk and vanilla extract, whisking until the batter is smooth.
    • Divide the batter into separate bowls and color each one with a different food coloring gel to create the rainbow colors.
  3. Cook the Crepes:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly grease with vegetable oil or cooking spray.
    • Pour a small amount of the colored batter into the center of the skillet, swirling to spread evenly.
    • Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side or until the edges lift easily and the crepe is lightly golden.
    • Repeat with each color until all batter is used, stacking crepes on a plate with wax paper between to prevent sticking.
  4. Assemble the Crepe Cake:
    • Place one crepe on a serving plate.
    • Spread a thin layer of the cream filling over the crepe.
    • Top with another crepe of a different color, pressing down gently.
    • Repeat layering with cream and crepes, alternating colors to form a rainbow effect.
  5. Chill and Serve:
    • Once all crepes are stacked and filled, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour to set.
    • Before serving, dust with powdered sugar or top with additional whipped cream and sprinkles if desired.
