Kuih Lapis

My second attempt at kuih lapis. Slightly better than last year's but well, it's still lousy.

The problem, I think, is that my oven temperature is wrong. It should have been more cooked which would have allowed better absorption of the butter making the cake seem less buttery. It tastes quite good, but it's so oily that it's a turnoff.
What a disappointment. One kuih lapis cake takes 3 hours to make at least. How horrible if it screws up.

Oh and because kuih lapis uses a lot of egg yolks, I used the remaining egg whites to make a lemon chiffon cake. But it looks horrid because I was more concerned with the lapis cake.
I haven't done anything successful for so long... My morale is sinking...
