... I saw a crepe cake, and became deeply excited to make one.

I found a recipe for "buttermilk crepe cakes" online, and made it with a beautiful brandied-chocolate buttercream... only to find that the "buttermilk crepes" in question were nothing but American-style pancakes. I was so pissed off, I gave the frosting to someone else and ate the flapjacks in a mood of savage gloom. (I realize the participle dangles, but that imagery improves it and I'm not so sure it's untrue.)

To this day, a decade later, even after pretzel pancakes at the Bongo Room (which come smothered in creme Anglaise and are despite and even because of this quite delicious), I am not certain if I was sensible or a fool to pass up the experience of pancakes thickly layered with frosting.
