This sapin-sapin layer cake tastes like your childhood made even more childlike. You can impart as much ube and langka flavor as you want into each sponge. We’ve even added coconut to the crimson and cream-colored layers. This instantly makes it much more flavorful than a lot of sapin-sapins out there, where the massive amount of food coloring takes precedent over flavor, making them taste like colored plastic. A touch of halaya buttercream finishes the cake.
