Peuyeum cake

This peuyeum or tape singkong or fermented cassava cake is highly recommended by my friend Tika Hapsari Nirmada of cemplang cemplung. She adapted this cake from Vania Samperuru's blog and then captured it sooo beautifully that it came directly to my mind when I saw peuyeum in the basket of si yuk sayur, the vegetable seller, yesterday. Yes, I want this cake. Tika is right, it is delectable...
