Bunner’s just dropped their holiday menu, and it’s huge. Cakes of sponge toffee and cranberry clementine. Tarts of salted chocolate and bourbon caramel. Cookies. Cupcakes. Muffins. Crumble. Also, vegan “chicken” pot-pie, and a personal “hungry bun” dinner — TV style — for if you’re the only veg-head at the holiday affair. Boom.
