:: Sarawak Layer Cake August 27, 2007Posted by Minci 先生 in Food and Drinks.
One of the food attractions in Sarawak is the Sarawak Layer Cake or in Malay known as ‘Kek Lapis Sarawak’. It takes a lot of effort, skill and precision to make them which explains why it’ll cost a lot when you do buy them. You’re paying for the skill. It’ll be nice to learn the trade. These kek lapis has names and they’re pretty updated too as illustrated in the pictures below. Credits to Katarsis for images.
It’s not just kek lapis that has these cheeky names. I suppose it is normal for you to find cakes named ‘Cindai’. When M Nasir won Juara Lagu 1999 with the Andalusia song, immediately after that a cake was named Andalusia. Matilah budak pompuan sumer tk nk makan. Ha ha. It is a pretty cake. Made mostly from egg whites and God knows what else to give the cake a fair ‘complexion’. Ngaa.. is it an indication that girls with fair , pretty skin will be andalusia’s? Miahaha 😈
*andalusia = ‘An’ (anak) ‘da’ (dara) ‘lan’ (lanjut) ‘usia’ . In other words it means spinster/old maid.
Note: Might be going to Sarawak at the end of this year to visit relatives. Maybe could persuade my nice aunties to bake one for me. Hihihi~
