Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Skillet

Ingredients

Crepes

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Icing

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup funfetti cake mix
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles

Instructions

  • In a blender, mix together crepe ingredients. Cover and chill in refrigerator at least an hour. Overnight is best.
  • Heat a medium nonstick pan over medium/high heat, and brush lightly with butter or cooking spray.
  • Drop 1/4 cup of mixture onto the heated pan, immediately picking up the pan and tilting it in a circular motion, making a thin crepe.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes on the first side, flip it, and 30 seconds on the other side.
  • Stack crepes to the side on a plate (depending on the size of your pan, it should make between 8-12 crepes).
  • In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream until it turns frothy. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and cake mix gradually while beating. Whip until light and has a thick enough consistency to spread as an icing.
  • Spread icing evenly between each crepe, and use any remaining icing on top. Top with sprinkles and let it cool in the refrigerator 1-2 hours before serving.
