What’s a celebration without an aesthetic cake, perfectly designed for an artistic Instagram photo dump? Today, Korean bento cakes, also known as lunchbox cakes, are a particularly popular choice. They may only be big enough to serve four people at most, but their adorably minimalistic designs with simple yet elegant frosting patterns, charming messages, or playful illustrations make them a certified hit. The more Instagrammable, the better! Wondering where you could find these gorgeously tiny cakes? Here are our recommendations for the best Korean minimalist cakes in KL and beyond.

The Best Korean Minimalist Cakes in KL

1. Lilian’s Cake House

We’d give you three guesses to get the name behind Lilian’s Cake House right, but something tells us you’ll get it on the first try. But what you won’t guess, especially considering the gorgeous cakes from Lilian’s Cake House, is that Lilian is a self-taught baker! Through YouTube videos, she learned how to make her delicious wares, including her signature and best-selling Houjicha Chiffon Cake. Visit their bakery at Mont Kiara to purchase your perfect cake with the custom-made design of your dreams.

They even have a DIY bento box cake that comes with three piping bags filled with multi-coloured buttercream icing and sprinkles.

7. Real Sweet Treats

Real Sweet Treats has a little hidden cafe in Plaza Damas and we definitely recommend giving them a visit for their RST Breakfast alone — but we’re here for the cakes! You can order custom cakes from this bakery, including ones with fondant detailing (fair warning from the cafe itself: fondant looks gorgeous, but fondant isn’t known for its taste). Choose between twelve different flavours like Banana Palozza, Matcha, Passionfruit, and Vanilla Buttercake, so Real Sweet Treats can bake the perfect mini cake made just for you.
