Did you try some of the wonderful tasty cakes that were on offer from Bunston Bakes at our Easter Boutique Market? Well today we go behind the scenes and get to find out more about Ellie and her creations!
So where did Bunston Bakes start?
I baked as a hobby, looking for any excuse to bake whilst I working in my office job in London. My boyfriend persuaded me to start a little business on the side. At the time I didn't really think people bought bespoke cakes! Then I started following other bakers on social media and found a wealth of creativity and demand! I had to be apart of it, so with a little guidance from fellow know hows in the industry and my supporting family I decided to give it my all. I left my job and moved to Brighton to start living the dream!
What's your favourite cake to bake?
Creating wedding cakes is the best part of my job. I love meeting the couples and making the perfect bespoke cakes for their special day!
What do you love most about participating in fairs and local events?
I love doing fairs and markets as it's great to get out my kitchen and chat to people about what I love to do. Seeing what cakes and bakes people go for. Experiment with new creations and test them out!
Take a look at Bunston Bakes wonderful Instagram page but be warned, you will leave feeling hungry! If you like what you see then remember, Bunston Bakes can also make cakes to order, so contact Ellie next time you're in need of a show stopping bake.
