Fans of savoury birthday cakes, we’ve found yet another unique option for you. Home-based business So Lapisly Good sells steamed yam cakes, or orh kueh, which are not only Instagram-worthy, but taste orh-some too.

The yam cakes are made by Jenny Wee, who is originally from Kuching, Sarawak, using a traditional family recipe passed down through three generations. She learned how to make them during the Circuit Breaker ’cos her husband missed the orh kueh that her mum, who lives in Kuching, makes.

“I had some Zoom lessons with my mum,” laughs Jenny, who is in her mid-50s. “I used to watch her make orh kueh, but never tried making it myself ’cos she wouldn’t let me. She likes to dominate [in the kitchen].”

It took Jenny around four months to perfect the recipe before launching them on So Lapisly Good in August last year.
