Hi, another masterpiece!! all those layers so uniformed... this cake sure requires lots of patience and time to produce.... so that's where all the yolks went after those lovely macaroons you made the other day, right?? is this one for own consumption? may I have a slice?:) btw, thanks for the info about the cake spatula - Anita

Andrea said...

This is just amazing. If you never tell me it's a cake, this would have passed as a watermelon.
It looks so real.

yochana said...

Wow,it looks so beaautiful. Wondering where can i get to buy the watermelon milk powder? Never seen it before. Does it have watermelon? The black dots come from black sesame? Thnks

yochana said...

HI anonymous,

YOu try Phoon huat. They sell watermelon milk powder. They used it for bubble tea.

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Oops... I forgot to reply to you about the black sesame seeds. Yes they are black sesame seeds.

Peng said...

Hi Aunt Yo...may i know how long u grill for each layer? top n bottom heat? or top heat only? thanks

yochana said...

Hi Peng,

I used grill mode - about 10 mins each layer.

Passionate About Baking said...

Hi Aunt Yochana.
This is so COOL! It's so beautiful! I realised the layering is not very distinct, as in normal lapis cake. Does it mean that you didn't grill each layer till it's very browned? Even though it's not very distinct, I can still see that it's a lapis cake. I shall try it one of these days... Heehee...:)

Jane

yochana said...

Hi Jane,

If you want the lapis to be very distinct, grill longer till it's more brown.

yochana said...

H jacqueline,

You weight the 480 first then balance will all go to red colour.

dtwhale said...

hi yochana, can u tell where to get the watermelon powder and how it taste & look like.

I did do a similar outlook watermelon lapis with another recipe....

i found that w/o top layer of green & white it will look more like watermelon slices ^_^

yochana said...

Hi dtwhale,

My friend bought the watermelon powder for me from Sarawak.

Yes..got idea. w/o the top, it looks like slices.

dtwhale said...

yochana said...

Yes dtwhale,

What a mouth watering cake! Yochana, just wondering, do you grill the layers from the first right to the last? You did'nt use the oven heat at all? Some teachers use oven for the first and last layer. If so, bake at what temperature? Sorry for asking so much.

Aunty Yochana said...

hi,

I used oven heat for the 1st and last layer of the cake too...

Sally said...

Hi,
I'm impressed with your work. need some advice.Can i use a small oven to bake cake lapis?i've tried few times but it didn't goes well.the below part and all the sides are so hard.Was that because i bake it too long(for every layer) & the temperature was too high?some more the colour was not the same as i wanted it to be though i used the same colour based on each recipe.I really admire what you did and wish i can do the same.Thanks.
Rgds,
Sally

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi sally,

how small is your oven? What brand is it?

XXX said...

Hi, Yochana.

I wonder, what exactly lapis is. Sorry for stupid question, but I cannot translate it and I like your creations so much, that I would like to make it, and I am not sure if it is possible to get such ingredient in my country...

Thank You very much.
Asaku.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Asaku

Lapis means layered.
