A Warm Hug in Every Bite: Kueh Lapis that Resonates with Timeless Flavors and Heartfelt Memories.


In the hustle of modern life, finding moments of pure joy can be elusive. Enter Kueh Lapis by Mom, a haven for those seeking more than just layered cakes. Join us as we explore the journey of flavors, craftsmanship, and nostalgia that defines our offerings.


Mom's Legacy: A Trailblazer in Baking

Mom baked, conducted baking classes and sold homemade baking treats for almost thirty years before retiring in the late 90s to take care of us, becoming the most wonderful mom we could ever ask for. My mom was a true pioneer in the baking goods category. Back in the 80s, she was featured a few times on our local Malay language radio FM94.2, newspaper (Berita Harian) and even Women’s magazine (Jelita) in Malaysia. Her exclusive desserts took everyone back to their fondest memories and brought people together.

Revival in Lockdown: Crafting Joy in Crisis

During the recent COVID-19 health crisis, my now 73-year-old mom returned from retirement to bring joy to the community during the distressful lockdown. To everyone’s surprise, her timeless recipes had the same effect that once made headlines. Produced in exceedingly small quantities with time-worn baking methods and lots of passion, mom's kueh lapis sell out as soon as she layers them up!
