Mini Cakes Big Fun: Bento Cake Workshop

A recent workshop at the Textile Institute of Pakistan offered students a chance to take a break from their studies, have some fun, and create delicious memories with friends. The Bento Cake Workshop, led by final-year student and home-based baker Madiha Dilshad, was a fun-filled session of cake decorating.

Dilshad, who has been running a home-based baking business called Sweet Street for four years, shared her expertise with her peers, guiding them through the process of creating bento cakes. Bento cakes are small, individual cakes that are often decorated in cute and creative ways.

The workshop was a welcome respite from the demands of schoolwork. Students were able to relax, share laughs, and create something delicious. Despite some “hilarious decorating disasters,” as the blog post describes, everyone left the workshop with a smile and a sweet treat.

In addition to learning how to make bento cakes, students also gained insights into Dilshad’s online cake ordering business. Dilshad shared her tips for creating and running a successful home-based business.

The Bento Cake Workshop was a great success, and it’s a reminder that there’s more to life than just textbooks and exams. Sometimes, the best way to learn is to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new.

I owe a significant part of my professional success to my alma mater, the Textile Institute of Pakistan, where I earned my BSC Hons in Textile Sciences. The knowledge and skills I acquired during my time at TIP laid the foundation for my rapid career growth. The institute’s strong industry connections and emphasis on practical learning provided me with a unique edge in the job market.
Within a short span, I achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the youngest General Manager of Marketing in the industry at just 28 years old. Today, as a Director of Marketing for the past five years, I continue to excel in my field, leveraging the expertise and confidence instilled in me by my education at TIP.
I am forever grateful to my alma mater for shaping my career trajectory and enabling me to reach new heights.

TIP is not just a university but a unique community that enabled me to walk on paths not previously taken, initiate new ventures, and drive change. It was at TIP that I found a nurturing environment filled with mentors who inspired me, peers who challenged me, and resources that empowered me. This support system was instrumental as I led organizations in C-level leadership roles at a very young age, gaining experiences that would have been unimaginable without the foundation laid by TIP. Eventually, this journey led to the founding of Fruit of Sustainability, Pakistan’s first tech company specializing in digital social and environmental due diligence SaaS platforms which is set to revolutionize the Textiles and Apparel Industry in Pakistan. The entire journey is deeply and profoundly attributed to TIP.

The time I spent at TIP campus had been the most important part of my career. It has given me confidence to achieve something that i used to believe as impossible. TIP has been a multicultural institute where I got the opportunity to engage with people of various cultural backgrounds from across Pakistan. We were valued, pampered and sculptured for the country’s textile industry. Due to the high quality of education and personal brought up I received at TIP, I am being valued today in the textile industry.

Entering the Textiles Institute of Pakistan back in ’05 kicked off my journey to where I am today. It wasn’t just about hitting the books; it was the whole vibe. The professors? They were like our industry sherpas, mixing theory with real-world stories that got us buzzing about business. They didn’t just teach; they inspired. And outside class? It was a hub of creativity and teamwork, where we bounced ideas off each other and dreamed big. The institute didn’t just give me skills; it lit a fire in me to tackle anything that came my way. So, yeah, big shoutout to my alma mater for shaping me into the entrepreneur I’ve become.
