Recipe of Bento box


Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C) and divide the baking cups between the muffin tray.


Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes as indicated on the package and divide between the baking cups. Bake the cupcakes in about 18-22 lightly browned and let them cool on the counter after baking.


Grease the baking pan with FunCakes Bake Release Spray. Prepare 150 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe as indicated on the package. Bake the biscuit for about 30-35 minutes, and immediately after baking, dump onto a cooling grid and leave to cool.


Prepare 175 g FunCakes Mix for Enchanted Cream® as indicated on the package and flavour with some FunCakes Flavour Paste Mascarpone.


Cut the sponge cake 2x with the cake leveler and fill and spread thinly all around with a layer of Enchanted Cream®.  Knead the sugar paste well, roll it out thinly and line the cake with it.


Colour the rest of the Enchanted Cream® with the FunCakes Food Colour Gels. Put the cream in decorating bags with the adaptors and tips. For the #1M you don’t use an adaptor. Decorate the cake and cupcakes with the various colours of cream.


Sprinkle some FunCakes Nonpareils Bronze on top and decorate with some gold.


To finish the bento box, cut the insert to size for the cake. Leave 2 holes for the cupcakes.
