Honey Bun Cake Factory Sweetens Up “Get Real with Chris & Mark” Podcast

BRYANS ROAD, Md. — The BayNet podcast, “Get Real with Chris & Mark,” invited Anthony McFarland and Michaela Nerschbach of the Honey Bun Cake Factory to tell the community about their delicious Honey Bun cakes and sandwiches.

Located on Bryans Road, Maryland, the Honey Bun Cake Factory serves over 90 flavors of Honey Bun Cake.

On the podcast, Chris Hill and Mark Hill, the hosts, had the pleasure of tasting one of their best sellers, the Honey Bun Rum Cake, with cameral and pecans.

“A honey bun cake, for the classification, is a North Carolina dessert. In the past, it was called Pan Dulce. Later, it became… a big company came and took over and called it Honey Bun. There is no honey in it. They called it the Honey Bun because it’s shaped like a honeycomb,” McFarland explained.

Unlike the famous boxed dessert, the honey bun cake is shaped like a traditional cake, but it is moist and layered with different flavors depending on the cake you choose.

Since early October, the establishment has introduced a line of sandwiches to the menu, making Honey Bun Cake Factory the perfect stop for weekday lunches.

These sandwiches are heavy, weighing in at a quarter pound of meat. Even the wrappers are jumbo in size. No one goes away hungry after enjoying a meal at Honey Bun Cake Factory, though.

Chris and Mark challenge their guests to talk about the challenges they are currently facing.

McFarland explained that his biggest challenge is “The price increase. The cost of food is constantly going up as gas fluctuates.”

Regardless of the cost increases, most of their menu items are around the $9 price range.

“It’s our community and we have to adapt because we want everyone to have the opportunity to try our food,” Nerschbach said.

Through the challenges, what sets Honey Bun Cake Factory apart is its connection to the local community.

“We get our brisket from Chuck’s, the butcher shop on Bryans Road which is right next to us. Which coincidentally, the man is also my direct neighbor. So we have a little network there with everyone,” Nerschbach told Chris & Mark.

“We talk a lot about that, about how the companies are working together. It’s very important and we love it,” Chris continued.

Honey Bun Cake Factory supplies cakes to more than 150 restaurants in the DMV. They hope to visit Calvert and St. Mary’s County soon with their mobile food trailer.
