Do not Dare

These are some layered cakes (kuih lapis/kek lapis) that my co-worker bought from Sarawak but I did not try them because they are too colourful to be eaten in my opinion.

  1. I agree. These are indeed to colourful for consumption. I prefer those natural looking ones.

  3. Last year I had this argument with my handicapped friend over the "Layer Cake" prior to our trip to attend his workshop in Jakarta. I was talking about buying the famous Indon layer cakes from Jakarta and he was quick to reject my idea citing the unhealthy colour reasons. I was taken aback as I never thought the Indon ones used toxic colours as they looked so brownish. In the end he texted me images of this Kek Lapis which you "Do Not Dare" to eat. I wanted to die laughing. I might try to eat this colourful piece for just one experience as I am game to try everything under the sun for once in my lifetime.

    1. I have eaten those brownish ones from Indonesia many years ago. Do you dare to eat cat meat in Vietnam?

    1. I guess they are. That's why tourists buy them as gifts for friends back home.

  6. I'm not sure if these coloring that they used is same as those in rainbow cakes or some colourful kuih lapis, but I will try once.

  7. Unless you know it is from reputable kek lapis sellers who use natural colouring, then it is fine.

    1. if use natural colouring, they must state on their packaging so consumers know about it. Thanks for dropping by while you are still on vacation!

  8. Yes, some are indeed horrendously colourful. Never mind natural or otherwise, I would not touch those either.
