Cook, learn and have fun

Tot Cross Buns is a cookery class for children aged from 2 years old and above. The business is the brain child of Allison Woolford, a Basingstoke mum who is passionate about cooking and wants to pass on this passion to children – giving them confidence with food and encouraging them to try new tastes and have fun in the kitchen with mum and dad. We also run Weekend Kitchens for all children, whether they are 2 or 10!  Everybody deserves to have fun in the kitchen!   We host Zoom After School Clubs for the school aged children too!   Baking from my kitchen to yours!  Look out for Tot Cross Mums and Tot Cross Dads events too.

All About our mini bakers…


The aim of Tot Cross Buns is to introduce children to food through taste, smell and touch all in a fun and relaxed environment. They’ll be cooking healthy recipes (some treats too!), which have all been tried and tested, and will involve the children every step of the way – and there will be no washing up to worry about!.


The classes will involve cooking anything from muffins and scones to pizza and quiche and while they’re cooking there will be a fun food related activity. This could be anything from exploring textures and tastes to planting seeds. We make sure all our classes are safe for everyone so will always take account of allergies and operate a strict ‘no nuts’ policy.


At Tot Cross Buns, our classes are designed for children and their grown-up, whether that is mummy, daddy, a grandparent or another special adult. Come along, cook and enjoy some quality time together, whilst having lots of fun and making lovely memories. Relax and enjoy yourselves. You don’t even have to worry about the mess, as we will do all the washing up!


Our birthday parties are suitable for children aged 2-10 years old – although older children can be catered for too – just ask. If you’re looking for something a bit different where the children get to cook their own birthday tea – Please do contact us here.

Meet Our Chefs

I am a home cook for my husband and my little girl, Lilly. I believe that every child should have fun cooking, tasting and exploring food, having the confidence to try new things. This is what made me start fun and educational children’s cooking classes at Tot Cross Buns.
MichelleBusiness Develoment and Assistant Chef
Hi, my daughter and I started attending classes just after Allison started Tot Cross Buns. We loved them and still attend as many events as we can. I started out helping out in the kitchen at parties and events, and since early 2018 have been officially supporting Allison to build the business. I really believe in what Allison and Tot Cross Buns stands for and love being part of it.
