Lazy Lunch and Flower Cake

So, it's a lot harder to force myself to make bento in the summer when I don't have to. Confession : We've been eating easy mac for lunch. Kidlet makes it :P I make the salad. So by school year standards this is a lazy lunch for me. But, by summer standards it's amazing :P

Packed in one of our Easy Lunch Boxes   Kidlet has a Boca Chick'n patty on a sandwich thin, carrots with container of dressing, and a checkered apple that fell over. On the side are cheesy veggies and yogurt with granola on top.

I finished my 2nd cake class of the summer and we decorated our final cake tonight. I've really been having a lot of fun in this class. We learned to make a lot of different royal icing flowers this time.

My finished cake! I am really happy with the way it turned out. I chose not to do the basketweave because I had a hard time not sticking my hand in it when we practiced. I opted for a swoopy bottom decor instead.

The inside of this cake is chocolate with and oreo filling. The neighbor kids approved!


  1. Your cake looks great! I really like the colors your chose.

    Nice summer bento! This summer I've been making a lot of soups for lunch for the girls. They are ready for school to start next week so they can get back to having bento every day. :)

  2. O.M.G. If I made cakes like that I would quit with bento and make cakes full time!! Not kidding!!

    But I know what you mean about "summer lazy" -- I can count on one hand the number of times I've actually cooked food for summer bento..yikes. Anyway. Summer's all about more time for play!

  3. So happy to see bentos from you again!!!

    Love the cake too, that is simply amazing.

    Thanks for linking up again too! :o)

  4. Boca patty? Give that poor kid some meat :-)

    How do you make the checkered apples?

    I"m going to give the cheesey veggies a try as it might be a way to get my little girl to eat broccoli, without dipping it in chocolate

  5. He likes Boca patties :) And is a vegetarian by personal choice.

    The checkered apple is easy to make and I have a tutorial here:

  6. I just happened upon your blog. I love the cuteness of the bento. I'm your newest follower.

  7. Whoa! Nice cake! Question: Whats the recipe for the filling on the cake? It looks delicious!
