Bento # 148 – Lions bento

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.
