Choco-mint Sarawak layer cake (砂捞越可可薄荷千层糕)

Kek lapis Sarawak, is one of the specialty of Sarawak. This layer cake comes in different flavor and different colors between the layers. Normally this layer cakes can only be seen in Raya time. In fasting month you will see lots of different design of layer cakes(kek lapis) selling in the puasa(fasting) month market. The whole cake will be selling for 85 ringgit which is expensive :p But then they will also cut the cake into 4 long bars and sell individually ..which makes it affordable to buy.                 This Raya I am baking a Kek Lapis for 2 of my Malay friends.  I am baking Kek Lapis Coklat Mint aka Choco-mint Sarawak layer cake. Normally layer cakes required more egg yolks then egg white to yield moist and softer texture for the cake. Some layer cake required 25 egg yolks but this one I am using is only using 10 eggs yolks and 6 egg whites. The left over egg whites is going to be one of the ingredients of my egg white sandwich loaf. Will be sharing after
