The nodding cake coating process also requires the operator to have his own secret and a lot of effort. Use a spoon to measure the amount of flour to ensure the cake when rinsing is thin or not too thick. After you pour the cake dough thick enough on the mold, make sure it is not as thick as the rice paper and not too thin like the cake. The fire to coat the cake must be even, so that it is not too hot and cooked evenly, not torn into pieces. When the cake is cooked, it will be rolled up and then placed on a banana leaf so that the cake does not stick together.
