assalamu'alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,
someone said this to me earlier "I am always, always fascinated at how in the whole wide world the Sarawakians do it. Their layer cake (kek lapis) I mean.
The complexity of the mixtures giving it a variety of distinctive taste not to mentioned the beauty of it. I must say, only when you put your own hands into it you begin to appreciate the art even more. It is a long and tedious process that took up to about 4 hours for a single cake.(i saw my mother baked those before!)
ps : me myself, always sat and stared for a long time into one, more in wondering how actually they come out with such an intricate colorful and batik-ful cake with questions like how do they actually put the colors in between like they'd colored the cake box by box..so intricate the design. Must be tedious…!!
