Full Description
Hi, I’m Ellie Bunston, the founder and owner of Brighton based cake company, Bunston Bakes. Offering bespoke buttercream wedding cakes and custom celebration cakes, my bakes can add an extra special touch to any event. With nature acting as a constant inspiration for my creations, my cake designs are understated and subtly stylish. Every cake has an informal but elegant style, making them perfect for any party or celebration. I love to use fresh foliage and flowers to add a stunning finishing touch. This provides such an effective way to tie the cake in with the rest of your wedding day, and will make even the simplest of cake designs look effortlessly beautiful. The flavours I offer are unique and delicious, with each one being a product of extensive trial and development. My personal favourite flavour combination has to be lemon and almond sponge with a mascarpone frosting and lemon curd, but chocolate and salted caramel is a real crowd pleaser. In my 6 years of being a professional baker, the best part of my job has always been designing and creating wedding cakes. It’s an amazing feeling to be a part of every couple’s big day, and always such an honour to be trusted with creating their dream wedding cake.

Cinnamon Bun Wedding Cake
Ellie made us a unique wedding cake in October 2018 and we absolutely loved it - it was everything we wanted. We don’t think we have ever seen such a massive cake get devoured so quickly - the guests were huge fans! Ellie was friendly, professional and responsive - we highly recommend Bunston Bakes.

Semi naked wedding cake
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for our incredible wedding cake!! It was absolutely delicious- the best I’ve ever eaten!! We asked Ellie to make a bakewell flavour tier which she didn’t have on the list, and wow did she come up trumps... it was out of this world! The cake was so beautiful and we are so thankful for the time and effort you put into it. We will definitely be recommending Ellie to all of our friends! Thank you again xxx

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan early is an obvious one! Not only to get the suppliers you want, but it also gives you time towards the end to really think about the little details. to make your wedding as memorable as possible.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I had a groom who loved Gin! They had gin bottles on their tables with fresh flowers and as part of their menu, so I had to get involved, I made a homemade Gin and Blackberry jam for their Victoria sponge tier. Such a great touch!

Describe your typical process with a couple.
