A Speakeasy for Cakes

Delicious baked goods × HandCrafted with Love in Seattle


Hot Buns Bakery is a classy little establishment providing delightfully delicious wedding cakes and desserts in the Pacific Northwest.


Baking Philosophy 

I believe in baked goods that are made from scratch, with love.  I think you can really taste the difference.  Coming from a long line of talented bakers, I have honed my skills on willing friends and coworkers over more than a decade.

I don’t use fondant because it doesn’t taste good, plain and simple.  I just want to make a cake as good as your grandma’s, pure and honest and delicious.

We were the envy of all at the restaurant with the birthday pie! One noted the lack of gelatin and the excessive amount of fruit. All high on your pie!

I had the BEST dessert table a bride could ever ask for. ... It was beautiful and everything was delicious! I tasted one of each and can’t even pick a favorite because they were all so good! The guests were raving!
— Kate
You make the Best Damn Cake! I’ll never forget how thrilled we were the night after our wedding to discover the third cake in a freezer, it hadn’t made it out to the party, and it was promptly devoured by the lucky remaining guests, before it could even thaw out! Nomnomnom! So good, even frozen!
