Breakfast in bed idea for Mother's Day with lavender honey crepe cakebowl of fresh fruit and blackberry lemonade GASP! "Brittany, there's food on the blog? What's going on?" I know you must be thinking that you came to the wrong site today, but wonder no more. This IS food. It's edible. And it's awesome! I'm horrific in the kitchen but I love to eat so the the big question was, how to combine the two? I've teamed up with the wonderful Karlee Bronson and food photographer Laura Sumrak to start featuring more recipes that will make your mouth drool. We're focusing on more healthy choices because uh, my skirts don't fit like they used to and I thought it would be nice to create dishes that are gorgeous, delectable and mostly guilt-free. Good combo, right?
I'm not the biggest fan of the idea of bringing food parcels into bed, but this one is pretty crumb free so I'm all over the idea of a crepe cake with layers of creme and hints of lavender. Basically anything with creme I'm a fan of. Karlee got the recipe from some friends who lived in Russia and came up with the perfect crepe recipe from their Russian friends. We topped off the meal with a bowl of fresh fruit and blackberry lemonade sweetened with honey. AND, there's NO SUGAR!

Fold in lavender into the honey whipped cream.

On a cake plate place first crepe down and apply about ½ cup whipped cream mixture.  Spread around on crepe. It’s okay if it falls off sides.
