This is Seyma:) Founder of FUNKY BAKERS.
I love to host and feed people, so this passion turned to my business after 9 years of marketing experience at mobile communication companies and an engineering degree.
I live in Barcelona for almost 10 years with my little family: my son Atlas and my husband Emre.
What's your favorite product from Funky Bakers?
SEYMA: My favourite product is Cardamom & Cinnamon BABKA, I tryed this product first time when we opened first Funky Bakers, the pastry chef at the time, introduced me the cinnamon one and I fell in love with it. It was the classic cinnamon one and delicous but I wanted to create a flavor that belonged to us, after tons of trials, Cardamom BABKA came out inspired by turkish coffee, it has cardamom & cinnamon butter filling and espresso glaze:)
Where would you like to eat your favourite product?
SEYMA: A beach picnic breakfast! The sea has healing power, as BABKA:)
I escape with a flat white and cardamom babka to the beach to feel good.
What BORN means to you?
SEYMA: Born is my first love in Barcelona. I started to live in Born with FUNKY BAKERS. But before that I was always coming to pass time here.
It´s beautiful, buildings are amazing, people are colorful so we have a beautiful hype here. We are in the center and still we have a neighborhoud life, we have little local traditional shops and new projects together.
