” I’ve attended a number of classes at Wee Buns. Summer baking, Traditional Irish Baking, cake making and decorating and the latest on Saturday past was Easter Baking. Each class has been brilliant! I thoroughly enjoyed each one and recommend them to everyone! All recipes are very easy to do at home afterwards and Mary Anne is an excellent teacher! A brilliant hidden gem in the Moy! “
“What a great day my dad and I had at Wee Buns Cookery School.
Big John went along begrudgingly but ended up having a ball and out-baking the women.. so keen was he that he ended up baking his own wheaten bread the day after as per the recipe we took home. There’s no faking that smile , he’s delighted with himself 🙂 “
