Buni’s Bakery got its start in July of 2020, with help from my mom and a supportive Arch Beach Heights neighbor of mine. My first personalized cookies were for my longtime Laguna friend, George, who absolutely loved them. I gifted George my personalized cookies during the COVID19 lockdown, as a way to reach out and brighten his day. After perfecting my recipe, I started personalizing cookies for friends and neighbors, including their children, who quickly became Buni's biggest fans.

“Buni” which means “Granny” in Romanian, honors my mom, who is a wonderful grandmother and has taught me everything I know, including this recipe.

After several months of research and development, I officially launched in November of 2020. I carefully make all the cookies from scratch in Laguna Beach. I use individual letters to create customized messages. These cookies are a perfect gift for any occasion from a teacher appreciation gift to a wedding favor or a corporate event.

I could not have done it without the love and support of my family, friends, and the Laguna Beach Community.
