苏拉巴亚夹心蛋糕 Surabaya Layer Cake

Indonesia is famous for its Lapis Legit (Sweet Layer) cakes, which was originally developed and brought into the country during the Dutch colony. Over the years, the cake has further developed into many variations localized version. Unlike traditional lapis legit cake which is more time consuming to make, Surabaya lapis cake only have 3 cake layers to work on.
