The McFarlands are the owners of Honey Bun Cake Factory. This phenomenal couple supplies about 31 restaurants in the DC Metro area with their honey bun cakes. They also ship their cakes and accept online orders.
How did The McFarlands make baking a business?
The seed for the Honey Bun Cake Factory was sown when Tisha Petteway McFarland and her husband Anthony took Tisha’s honey bun cakes to a local flea market. They sold out within ONE hour. The couple also started to bake these cakes for their family and friends. Tisha’s husband saw the potential in his wife’s baking and was was instrumental in taking the Honey Bun Cake Factory to the next level. She admits that her husband is the “brains” behind the operation. “He is the reason the business it where it is. He’s put in a lot of late nights.”
He began by asking a local restaurant to sample their cake. The rest is history. They grew from 1-2 restaurants, to 7-8, and then 10. Now they supply over 30 businesses with their cakes.
