Sapin-sapin is a native delicacy which is layered in different colors and usually made from glutinous tice flour. The sapin-sapin recipe I have here does not contain glutinous rice flour. Instead it uses gelatin as a binder and to set the sapin-sapin. The rest of the ingredients of this native dessert consists of coconut milk, ube powder, whipped cream and corn kernels. So if you want to level-up your favorite kakanin, I think this is a good start.
