Japanese crêpe cake (Mille crêpes) (日式千层蛋糕)

Recently while shopping in Muji Department store, I stumbeled upon a cake mix for a cake made entirely of crêpes and cream. When I saw the picture on the packing I could just imagine biting into the fluffy and creamy cake in my mouth, so I decided to give it a try. The result was quite nice, however I thought “No need for a cake mix - I can do that myself”, so this weekend I gave it a try.
