Rich Bath buns were a favourite of Jane Austen - though apparently it was easy to over-do it.
Rich cake: This is the cake of cakes, served at weddings, balls, and birthdays. The ingredients are expensive and the recipe time-consuming. Typically, a large cake like this was baked several months in advance of the actual date and then doused in brandy to prevent mold from growing.

The Squishy History of Bath’s Buns
'Sally Lunn-bun' and 'Bath bun's'. Sally Lunn, a young French refugee, arrived in England over 300 years ago. She found work at what is now known as Sally Lunn's House and began to bake a rich round and generous bread now known as the Sally Lunn Bun. This bun became a very popular delicacy in Georgian England as its special taste and lightness allowed it to be enjoyed with either sweet or savory accompaniments. Similar in texture to Brioche which is a French egg bread.
