  6. Place the crepe on a plate cover with wax paper and repeat until you have gone through all the batter
  7. Once you have made all your crepes set them in the refrigerator to cool. 

For the strawberry whipped cream

  1. Place the cream, sugar, and vanilla in a stand mixer and mix in high until stiff peaks form. 
  2. Mix in the strawberry jam until combined. 

For the assembly 

  1. Once your crepes are cool, start layering by spreading about 2 tablespoons of whipped cream between each crepe. They will slide around a bit so be gentle. Once you have completed your layers, let your finished cake set in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until its firm and doesn't wobble.
