Multicolored Kuih

My new creation of Layer cake.Unliked any Kuih Lapis you've ever tasted.This cake not only can be eaten throughout the day but also perfect for holiday parties too.The cake combines with three layers which featuring colorful of Pandan Leaves(screwpines),Taro and Cassava.All the layers need to be steamed till cooked in a steamer.The steaming process is same as the Kuih lapis.The base and texture are built of rice flour and corn flour which play a very important part in giving the cake a distinctive soft and yet firm texture.Like most Malay traditonal cake,it is flavouring with coconut milk.This bite sized version of Multicolored Kuih are one of my kids favourite.

These are the grated yam and cassava I used
