I don’t eat dessert, but sometimes cake is inevitable. There are two cakes that I crave on such occasions. Crepe cake from Falai and Ben’s mother’s icebox cake. They’re essentially the same thing — super thin layers of pastry between fresh whipped cream. So simple, so delicious, and not all that sweet.

This cake uses Anna’s Swedish gingersnap cookies. Here’s a slightly fancier Martha version.
