Kek Lapis: The Art of Cakes

Nee made some kek lapis (layer cake) yesterday. This is not the first time though.
She has made some before, something like over 100 pieces of 8" by 8"cakes in about a week.
I know! It was chaos!

I think Kek lapis looks like zebras.

I know I have a tendency to link food with exotic animals, but the similarity is obvious.

All the layers are painfully spread on one layer at a time. Take it out of the oven, spread the layer, put it back again. Repeat.

But this time, Nee tried out a new kind of kek lapis. Just look at them. It is madness. They're like pieces of pop art.

In fact, kek lapis is synonymous with Sarawak. It is a signature Sarawak product like Laksa and Kolo Mee. You can hardly find so many varieties in other part of Malaysia. It comes in many different colours, designs and composition and flavours as well. It is truly an artform. Just look at our wall...
