These are the names of the 2 layer cakes that I have tried. I had so much fun baking them, especially using my "new toy"... It was such a breeze and the machine was sure much quieter... Again I experimented on colors and I thought it turned out bright and cheery!
I just loved the smell, texture and taste of lapis strawberry. It's fluffy and at the same time, it's moist. Love the reddish/pink color too! The mini choc chips were used just to show the contrast of the 2 colors.
As for Lapis Alunan, I had a few color combinations in mind but decided to try out the blue - white - pink combo. This cake is a little tougher to do. It's the first time I was using the jagged penekan (jagged pressing tool). Need to make sure that the layers are baked neither too long or too short or it will break or crack. After a while, I got the hang of using it. Once I finished baking it, (which was slightly over an hour) I could not wait for it to cool down. I wanted so much to see how the layers turned out to be. Alas, being patient does pay..I was happy to see the colorful and wavy waves. That's why I named it "Alunan".... While eating Lapis Alunan, you'd feel like you are being lightly swayed by the waves and sea breeze too....hehehe...
Ok, this time round, i am satisfied with the 2 experiments of lapis. Will surely make these 2 again. My girls love them too! The weekend is approaching fast. Can't wait to greet "lovely Saturday and beautiful Sunday"!
