History and Introduction

'Bento' is a Japanese term which means 'convenient'. A Bento box holds a single-serve meal that can be prepared at home or ordered from a restaurant in Japan. The trend has been around for a year now as people are raving over these small and colourful treats. The approach quickly gained traction in neighbouring nations, including China, South Korea, and Taiwan. South Korea took it a step further by transforming them into adorable lunch boxes for on-the-go cakes.

These bite-sized cakes, neatly cooked to the size of a takeaway box, are all the rage in desserts today. They can be baked to fit any theme or occasion. Bento cakes can be turned into ideal party cakes, anniversary cakes, and birthday cakes for casual get-togethers, birthdays, or anniversaries.

Baking the Bento

Bento cakes are simple to bake, create, and embellish, making them ideal for novices or amateurs. You can check for step-by-step instructions available on the internet. Here is a brief version of the preparation. You will need standard cake making ingredients such as yoghurt, vegetable oil, baking powder, buttermilk, sugar, cocoa powder, and refined flour. In essence, you might want to use vanilla.

First, mix the oil, the essence, sugar, and buttermilk, and whisk them till they form a smooth mixture. Sieve and add refined flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and soda to another bowl. Combine these together with some milk till it forms a smooth batter. After that, mix the ingredients of both the bowls together and when you do this, make sure there are no lumps. Now, take a baking tray, pour the batter into it and bake it for 15 to 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. Now, combine whipped cream and sugar for the dressing and whisk until you visualise peaks. Transfer these into a piping bag and adorn the cooled cake in the way you wish.
