GIANT PMT Cookie Recipe

Cake are quite emotional things, there’s always an occasion for cake, big or small. Birthdays, weddings, christenings are the usual fayre here at Buns HQ, followed by the odd divorce cake, one funeral cake and a vasectomy celebration cake for a surprise party for the recipient (straight out of surgery!) Sometimes you might want to [...]

Gluten-wheat-egg-dairy-free vegan Brownies! Honestly!

More and more I get asked for specialist baking or dietary cakes in the form of Gluten-wheat-egg-dairy-free vegan. At Buns of Fun it’s exciting when a request comes in for something like this and we’re more than happy to be able to stretch our apron strings and use a variety of ingredients and mix it up.Here at Buns HQ there are 2 small budding chefs who love to lick a bowl and are only too pleased to be asked to ‘mix this’ and ‘stir that’. It’s lovely to hear them discovering about food and it’s origins and having pride in producing (or ‘helping’ to produce) something that the whole family can enjoy.

‘Spring’ into Baking

Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb - that's what it sounds like when talking about my favourite thing to grow in the garden.  I love this time of year when the fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs are waking up - the old caveman instinct is to eat green and try new shoots.  Today in our garden the sap [...]

One-Cake-Four-Ways

In the words of Jesse 'this week we 'ave mostly been playing around with' ...some fancy-pants cakery techniques and adapting our dummy Wedding cake, the one we used for the Most Curious Wedding Show. Our 'One-Cake-Four-Ways'. I love that working for myself means I can try my hand at anything and attack with aplomb once [...]

Most Curious, Most Fantastical

Image:Esther Ling Photography at Most Curious Wedding Fair - St Andrews Norwich 8th Feb 2015 Last weekend I had the most distinct pleasure of meeting some new folks who are newly and entirely focused on planning their Wedding.   Chiefly planning cakes if they were in front of me! Armed with notepads,  brain clouds and Pintrest [...]

Buns of Fun is 5 years old!

BUNS STARTED life at the kitchen table in North Norfolk and went on lots of beach picnics in the guise of freshly baked cupcakes, brownies and traybakes.  Coupled with a not-so-sober Burns Night where I made little Fimo babies for my guests as their place settings - Buns of Fun took shape that very evening.  [...]
