Kakanin

The Cambodian kind, btw. It was served during our Khmer New Year party and I couldn't eat the other local fares because I'm vegetarian. I contented myself with the desserts instead.

That yellow pudding is some sort of corn flan. The one wrapped in banana leaf is sticky rice with jackfruit preserve in the middle. Obviously, the last one is puto but made extra special with sugar palm sauce.

This lovely dessert is shaved coconut cooked in cream.

Their native desserts were almost like the ones we make back home in Iloilo. Made me miss the soft baye-baye in Luctugan, Ivisan and Passi.
