Traditional Malay Kuih Muih cakes highlight Hari Raya Puasa celebration. The dessert is quite chewy and moderately sweet. Although it comes in lots of varieties and bakers' creativity leads to the invention of new and new recipes, three most common kuih muih kinds include kuih lapis or a layer cake, kuih tart and kuih kukus buah-buahan, that is a stea​med cake with fruit bits nested inside.

Kuih cakes are made of coconut milk, starch, batter and a few more secret ingredients. Bakers love to experiment with colors and flavors. The best time to taste the desserts is during Hari Raya Puasa Festival.
