Korean bento cake is a popular dessert that everyone loves

 What does it mean and how did it appear?

 In general, the word "bento" came to us from Japan and means packing a serving for one or two people. Portions of food are common as school snacks, lunches that you can easily take with you. As is often the case, the classic idea was modernized and confectioners, striving for simplicity, decided to adopt this experience.

A disposable food container, parchment as a base, a cake candle and a cute fork are all that make up the original serving of a small cake. Its weight is always no more than a kilogram, so many confectioners do not dare to make such a dessert. In fact, the advantage of bento cakes lies in the bright design, which makes them popular among young people, for example, on:

  • for a birthday; 
  • as an apology; 
  • to confess to a lover in feelings;
  •  to a party to share it with friends;
  •  just to make someone happy.

 When ordering a cake, you can express your wishes both for the design and the composition of the filling. Keep in mind that simplicity is everything, so a minimal design using meaningful phrases like “I love you” or “Here you are one more year closer to old age” against a bright background will look much cooler than any decorations.
