Sarawak Kuih Lapis

I had been to Kucing, Sarawak in July 2007 and I had seen all those colorful and unique kuih lapis. But I didn't buy any of them as I thought they were too colorful. That would mean that they were full of artificial colorings! 

But this evening, I received these two kinds of kuih lapis from a friend who just came back from Kucing, Sarawak..


Unique patterns but when my girl smelt them, they have a kind of weird smell..

..but this kind smells good..more like a cake smell..

Thank you, my friend..

Will share with my staff and workers tomorrow..

  1. I find these kuih lapis too colourful..with loads of artificial colouring I suppose. Unique patterns but sometimes reluctant to eat them because of the colourings.

  8. now that you mention this, yeah, i do think those colors are too bright and artificial, sure they have added a lot of colorings to make them look nicer..

  10. but you can never deny how tedious it is to get one done, especially those with complicated patterns, they really make the baker spent whole day doing that i think??
