What are bento cakes

What is a Bento Cake?

"Bento" is a Japanese word that refers to a lunch box. Bento cakes are small cakes that are approximately 3 to 4 inches in diameter and weigh around 250 to 300 grams, making them sufficient for two people. They come packaged in a small box called a "Bento box." Bento cakes are most popular in Japan and Korea, but in recent years, they have gained popularity in India, especially in metropolitan cities like Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Delhi. Bento cakes are also known as Bento box cakes, Japanese cakes, Korean cakes, and lunch box cakes.

When to order Bento Cakes?

There are some occasions where you need to order larger cakes of 1kg or 2kg, and there are some occasions where you need to order a smaller cake. Bento cakes are perfect for such occasions. Below are some events that call for ordering Bento cakes.

1. When you crave for a cake to enjoy it as a Desert:

Sometimes, you might find yourself alone at home and craving for cake, but you don't want to order a large half-kilogram cake (which is the min quantity offered by most cake shops and bakeries) as it might go to waste. In such situations, our Bento cakes are the perfect solution. Our Bento cakes come in smaller sizes that are ideal for one person, so you can indulge in your cake cravings without any leftovers or waste. Order one of our Bento cakes and enjoy a delicious treat all to yourself.

2. Send a cake to wish your friends or family a happy birthday or celebrate a special occasion

Imagine celebrating your birthday with your family at home, only to receive 5 to 6 cakes from your friends and family as gifts. While it may seem like a sweet gesture, the reality is that half of each cake goes uneaten, leading to a lot of waste and an unpleasant feeling. 

This is a common mistake people make when sending cakes to loved ones - they opt for large ½ kg or 1 kg cakes without considering that others may also send cakes of the same size, leading to excessive quantities. In such cases, Bento cakes are the perfect solution. With a weight of around 300 grams, they are just enough for two people and are the ideal size to send as gifts. 

Now, imagine the same situation of receiving 5 to 6 Bento cakes on your special day, with just enough for you and your family to enjoy a small piece of each cake without any waste. It's a much better feeling than wasting cakes, don't you think?

3. Celebrate your special day with just the two of you
