Aspiring Bakers #27 Through Thick and Thin – Kue Lapis Classics Roundup!

Hi Everyone!! So here’s the moment we have been waiting for…. a compilation of delicious home-baked Kue Lapis! Thank you for your hard work and gorgeous submissions! I know these cakes can be quite laborious, so great job to all! Especially those who are making lapis for the first time! 🙂

I’m extremely impressed with everyone’s lapis cakes! So beautifully executed! There are 20 submissions in total. That’s 20 beautiful Kue Lapis cakes…. and a lot of chickens! 😛

Thank you SSB for letting me host this awesome event! As usual, it was a lot of fun for me receiving emails from you guys and looking at your lovely pictures! 🙂

Let’s start with the originals!
