Layer by layer and not knowing if the cake will turn out good. Will I attempt it again? Well, not anytime soon unless there is a good reason for it.
After the long baking hours, thank goodness it turned out okay. Now, I can proudly tell mum that I made my own Lapis. Taste nice too! I used the recipe from this blog. Only 10 egg yolks instead of 20 or 30 in some recipes. The only difference is I have used 5 egg whites instead. No particular reason. I just thought it was easier to split the egg whites in half because I used 10 yolks. The remaining 5 egg whites were kept aside just in case I messed up with the whites when beating them.
Pointers to note if I ever bake it again the next time :
- Do not bake the layers for too long
- Use a smaller baking tin so that I get thicker and more layers
- Beat the egg whites to very stiff peaks. I felt I didn't really beat it to stiff peaks today
