Lapis Bake - Traditional Lapis & Rainbow Lapis

My final bake for CNY...KuihLapis. Did 2 variants and spent 6 hrs in the kitchen baking. Recently seen a lot of rainbow bakes so decided to bake rainbow lapis for a change. I was wondering how would the effect like after the bake. Am so glad that the colours turned out well. It really brightens up my day after seeing this bake.
