I first came across Honeybuns and their lovely cakes in a rather unexpected place – at Glastonbury Festival! You can find out more on my blog post ‘My Gluten Free Glastonbury Experience’ but ever since I have tried many of their tasty cakes and I had the opportunity recently to try out their new gluten free cake mix.

Although it is quite small for the price tag- £2.79, it was very good when heated in the microwave for 30 seconds and served with salad for a light lunch.
