Welcome to Mr Buns Bakery Academy! 


Entrepreneur, Author, Artist, and Bakery Expert. 

Lee Fox-Smith is the MD of Mr Buns Bakery Academy. The original Mr Buns was created in 2007 out of a love of food and art. Lee started the business from his home kitchen and grew it into a City Centre Bakery. The shop was sold and now Lee only works at Mr Buns Bakery Academy helping others to live their dream and set up their own Bakery Business. Unfortunately, Lee doesn't make cakes anymore. 

Lee's Goal is to help you Start, Manage, Market, and Grow your own Bakery Business faster and easier than you ever thought possible.

Animal Charity Work 

Mr Buns is a not for profit business. Once all our costs are paid, any profits go to our social enterprise, Epic Animal Quest. 

On July 4th 2016 we launched our Social Enterprise to work with animal shelters and sanctuaries around the world to directly help the animals and raise awareness. 

By teaching compassion and leading by example, we are working for a brighter future for our children and future generations.
