Our friend David came to stay, it was his birthday a few days ago, but I didn't have time to bake a cake. So I just used some ready made sweet Crêpes (pack of 9) and whipped about 100 g of unsalted butter with one heap tbsp of icing sugar and a good dose of Cointreau (to taste!). I spread the butter cream on the Crêpes and topped it with edible flowers from the garden (you can do this if the flowers in your garden have not been sprayed). I added a few Alpine strawberries (also from the garden) and voilà! An instant cake that looked great, and tasted good and took no time! Sometime we need to 'cheat' a little!
