This year I did not managed to make any bento with the Chinese New Year theme, so to compensate my lack of creative I decided to deconstruct the Chinese New Year cakes into bento.
The Lion’s heads were of roll cake decorated with cheese, while for the body I use marble cake (I love how the texture of the marble cake looks perfect for the lion’s body and the paws , especially the Lion at the bottom part) .
Those stripes looks cakes were Kue Lapis (aka Layered Cake) is one of the most to have cake for Chinese New Year and a quite popular cake in Indonesia. It tooks lots of time and effort to bake the cakes layer by layer.
I choose and cut the different color/darker layer of the layered cake to make the facial expression of the Lions.
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR ALL
Wish you a prosperous and blessed Snake Year Ahead.
