‘About Us’ starts with an intro from me, Emma at Buns of Fun Bakery and ‘we’ started out in 2010. I am proudly self-taught and work from my garage conversion kitchen. I prepare every cake from scratch using the best ingredients, mostly with a Norfolk provenance. Working with lots of suppliers in the industry and making a good network of creative and enthusiastic collaborators.
In the beginning I was making tray bakes for beach picnics for new friends when we relocated from Buckinghamshire. This soon grew to include themed cupcake toppers and appearing at local farmers markets, also making individual wedding cake toppers in Fimo.
I almost exclusively make wedding cakes as well as taking corporate commissions and hosting 1:1s or group tutorials here in North Norfolk. I make large scale installations for Holkham Hall each December as part of their Christmas extravaganza (including Gingerbread House, Big Ben, Beach Hut, Secret Lives of Gingerbread-men). In 2015 I won Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas with a gingerbread Lighthouse. I love what I do (see top image).
For Christmas 2018 I’m filming with Channel 5 for a slot airing on Christmas Eve – follow the blog and Facebook for updates.
