Move over, mermaid toast – rainbow buns are now a thing

Kitty Drake

We’ve had rainbow bagels, mermaid toast and rainbow croissants – but now there’s a new colourful treat in town: a Cantonese steamed ‘bao’ bun.

Launched for Pride by Soho’s Bun House and Tea Room, just 250 of these custard-filled technicolour dreamboats will be on offer come Saturday July 8. TBH they don't look that eye-poppingly bright to us but maybe they'll be more colourful in real life. 

Rainbow buns will be sold for £2.50 at Bun House and Tea Room on Sat July 8.
