Turn up the wireless!

No, not the digital wireless. I mean the radio, Marian and I will be the special guest stars on Nick Coffer's show on Three Counties Radio on Wednesday June 5th at 12.30 pm.  Nick will be tasting our cakes and discovering how Buns and Bunting got started! I hope you can join us... Meanwhile here some lovely vintage radios to get you in the mood. Which would you choose to tune in on?

Buns and Bunting and Books

The sun shone, the authors and illustrators came, children laughed in the sunshine and their parents and grandparents ate cake! The Walled Garden Kid's Book Fest at Luton Hoo has a unique Secret Garden setting and attracted the top names in children's books.

We were too busy to see any talks, but were just thrilled to be there, enjoying the magical atmosphere of this unique book festival. I did manage a glimpse of the Bubble and Squeak event with Clara Vulliamy and James Mayhew which looked like lots of fun! And Guy Parker-Rees (of Giraffes Can't Dance fame!) came to enjoy our wares - see his blog post here!http://guyparkerrees.blogspot.co.uk/

One of Ruth's cakes won the prize for being first to be all sold - which was perfect as it was her birthday!

Thanks to all at Luton Hoo Walled Garden for their kind support, and the festival people for inviting us. And all of those who came and ate cake and drank tea: thank you!
