We love love love cake here at Bride and Tonic, and love it when we find someone who shares as much enthusiasm about cakes and weddings as we do! Emma from Buns of Fun creates the most amazing, bespoke cakes in a range of styles to suit any wedding. From boho and rustic, to traditional and contemporary, she sure has a lot of talent! We spoke to Emma to find out more about her business and love of weddings…
Tell us a a bit more about Buns of Fun…
Bespoke contemporary, traditional or themed bakes using Norfolk flowers, herbs and ingredients. Catering for hen parties with afternoon teas or cake decorating parties.
What inspired you to start your business?
Working from home with my (then) 1 year old making beach picnic cakes, now I have 2 boys both at school and we’re booking into 2018.
How are you different from any other similar suppliers?
We like to think we are forward thinking, changing style and adapting to trends whilst being able to service the more traditional wedding cakes too.
What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?
I love meeting couples and working with them to create pieces of natural edible art as the centrepiece for their day! Whether it’s a boho buttercream and florals, or decandent drips we love the whole process from planning to delivery.
What would be your number one piece of advice for a bride to be?
My number one piece of advice for brides is to meet your baker and check if your cake maker is excited and enthusiastic about making your cake, or just taking another order. We’re pretty transparent and regularly get whipped up about a forthcoming wedding!
Tell us about the best thing you have seen at a wedding you have been to?
The best thing I’ve seen at a wedding was a speaking stump at a Marines wedding and there were drinking etiquette rules such as ‘Saturdays Toasts are to Wives and Sweethearts’, ‘fill the glass of the person on your left but never fill your own’ and a couple of others for guests to join in with.
Finally, in one sentence why should someone choose Buns of Fun?
If you want enthusiasm in the planning stage and more than the initial brief on your wedding day we might have your date still free…our reviews speak for us.
