As you might have noticed, I changed the subtitle of this blog! It used to be Japanese and Korean inspired lunchboxes and some baking but as I have been baking so much lately – and as I want to show off my bakes 🙂 – I changed it to Bento and Baking.
Vanilla cupcakes with cute strawberry/rose decoration. A chocolate cake with sugar roses. Rainbow cake with chocolate buttercream and a Victoria Sponge.
A cake with spots! It was a vanilla sponge with caramel buttercream. And a daisy/rose cake with a checkerboard effect (vanilla & chocolate).
A woodland tree trunk – chocolate sponge with chocolate (fudge) buttercream. A gluten and dairy free vanilla sponge with vanilla “not-butter”cream. And two emoji cakes: a lemon one filled with lemon curd buttercream and a chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache.
Don’t worry, I have not been eating these all by myself :-). They mostly get shared with friends and colleagues. Obviously they’re not complaining…
I think my favourite of these cakes is the tree trunk one, I had so much fun making it and Iike how much it resembles a tree trunk. The most challenging one was the gluten and dairy free one, I made this for a colleague of my OH, as she hadn’t been able to enjoy any of the other cakes before. Measuring out all the pleats was a bit tricky and also because I had to adapt my recipe to be gluten and dairy free. Luckily it worked out well and she really enjoyed it.
Which one do you like most?
