Use your whisk attachment on your mixer, beat on medium to fast speed, DO NOT MOVE AWAY you need to watch it till it gets to the right consistency, or it could curdle, if you do curdle your mix just add more cream slowly to bring the cream back.

Now to build your Crepe Cake

Pace your first layer on to your presentation plate, they layer a thin coat of fresh cream, continue to do this until all layers are together.  Once built you can leave this or pop a small plate on top and cut around the sides down the cake to make it nice and neat, really is your choice.

For the topping , Place the balance of your cream on top, nice and thick, then take out the oranges from the syrup and place in selective places on top of the top layer, then with a spoon drizzle the syrup all over the top.
