Kue Mangkok (Bowl Cakes)
These cakes are Philip’s son’s favorites- and Philip’s too we suspect!
Tape Singkong is available in the traditional markets and in Tiara supermarkets.
These are the pretty puffed up cupcakes in vivid colors that are stacked up in traditional Balinese temple offerings. You can add food coloring if you wish.
