Buns are usually made from flour, sugar, milk, yeast and butter. Common varieties contain small fruit or nuts, are topped with icing or caramel, or filled with jam or cream. Some types of buns are filled with various meats.

"Bun" may also refer to particular types of filled dumplings, such as Chinese baozi. Some of these types of dumplings may be bread-like in texture.

A bun is normally made from dough that has been enriched with sugar and butter and sometimes egg. Without any of these the dough remains to be 'bread dough' rather than 'bun dough' and the resultant product will be called a roll, rather than a bun.

A Swiss bun or iced bun is an enriched bread made from a bread roll with an icing sugar glaze covering the top (usually white or pink). In some bakeries they are decorated as ballet slippers or other whimsical shapes/characters.

Sometimes, they have a small amount of raspberry or strawberry jam filling which oozes out when the bun is bitten. Also known as a "raspberry bun", they have many variations in size and shape, and are sometimes coated in sprinkles or coconut. Also, some varieties have lemon curd in the centre, with lemon icing on top.
