Happy New Year from Kristy's Bakery, Swansea

If your new year's resolution is to eat better, start with some good local produce.

At Kristy's Bakery we use no preservatives and nothing that you'd find in cheap factory-produced bread - just good quality ingredients, baked with care and attention. If your nan wouldn't use it to bake, chances are neither do we!

And as well as our fresh breads and cakes, we make an array of delicious pasta sauces, meatballs, lasagne and other traditional Italian specialties to order. Just get in touch to order: email us or call us on 01792 201479.

You can also pop into the bakery, on Eversley Road, Swansea. In 2016 we will be open every day of the week apart from Sunday and Monday. Our new opening hours are as follows:

Monday  Closed
Tuesday  9 - 4
Wednesday  9 - 4
Thursday  9 - 4
Friday  9 - 4
Saturday  9 - 1 
Sunday  Closed

See you very soon for some real food. Happy new year!

Christmas at Kristy's Bakery, Swansea!

It's Christmas time at Kristy's!

And while the weather in Swansea may still be pretty miserable, we are feeling as festive as ever in the bakery.

Handmade, traditional Christmas puddings, with our label.

As well as our usual traditional bake - from Italian breads to mozzarella puffs - we craft your favourite festive goodies: Christmas puddings, mince pies, chocolate logs, panettone, Christmas cakes, marzipan fruits, apple strudel, orange sticks, Santa biscuits, and more. All handmade on the premises, on Eversley Road, Sketty.

Our handmade marzipan fruits

This year, the main message to our lovely customers is simple: place an order or risk missing out. Every year we have customers that pop into the shop on Christmas Eve to pick up some treats, only to find we don't have what they are looking for because we have sold out.

This doesn't have to happen. We can make anything to order fresh for Christmas Eve, if you let us know in advance. Making an order is really simple - just give us a call on 01792 201479, or email us and we will do the rest.

Cocktail mince pies, made to order

We hope to see you in the shop soon. Keep supporting your local family businesses, and happy Christmas from everyone at Kristy's Bakery.

Naked wedding cakes at Kristy's Bakery Swansea

Don't worry, there's nothing rude about these cakes!

The reason these wedding cakes go by the nickname 'nude' or 'naked' is because they forego the traditional Royal icing, frosting or chocolate coating. And without that, the cake is essentially nude.

One of our lovely creations!
That's not to say they lack any visual impact - in fact these cakes tend to produce some of the biggest 'wow' factors around.

For this reason they are hugely popular with our customers (and even celebrities), and are a stunning addition to any wedding.

The nude cakes we make at Kristy's Bakery are beautifully rustic, colourful and unique, with our renown delicious flavour. We decorate the cakes with a variety of fruits, berries and sugars, and will match these with the colour scheme you are going for at your wedding.

The best news for customers is that by going nude it's a more cost effective way to enjoy a wedding cake. To chat about what we can do to make your big day extra special visit our shop on Eversley Road, Swansea, or call us on 01792 201479.

Love Lasagne? Try our home-made recipe!

As well as breads, sweets and chocolate cakes, we've been treating the people of Swansea to something different for years.

One of our most unique items in the bakery is our lovely home-made lasagne, which is available in individual portions, so customers can take home and enjoy in their own time.

Our delicious lasagne

Antonio makes the hearty pasta dish from a traditional family recipe, using quality home-made minced beef bolognese and creamy bechamel sauce in between layers of egg pasta sheets.

He will make a huge batch of lasagne before cutting it and freezing individual portions. This means you can buy it and take it home for a wholesome and comforting ready meal - a lot nicer than the stuff you'll find in a generic supermarket.

Fresh lasagne portioned out into takeaway containers

What do you enjoy lasagne with? Oddly we like it with chips! Yes, it's quite a stodgy meal, but you certainly won't be hungry afterwards. If you prefer something a little lighter, try a salad or a slice of our fresh focaccia.

We don't make the lasagne every week, and when we do it sells out pretty quickly.

If you would like to avoid disappointment please order a portion (£3.70 each) by popping into our Swansea bakery on Eversley Road, Sketty, or by giving us a call on 01792 201479.

Getting married in Swansea? Check out our chocolate wedding cakes at Kristy's Bakery

The majority of recent posts on our website have been showing off our delicious delicacies such as fresh focaccia, homemade Italian sauces and an array of Easter goodies.

However we want to bring to your attention the beautiful traditional and chocolate wedding cakes we have made in our Swansea bakery for decades.

Back in the mid nineties we were one of the first bakeries to bring chocolate wedding cakes to Swansea, and have been making them for happy couples ever since.

We keep the majority of photos of past cakes in our shop on Eversley Road, although we do have a page on this site that will illustrate some of the things we can do - from traditional fruit cake covered in Royal icing, to a lighter chocolate sponge covered in chocolate cigarellos, to beautiful Croquembouche towers.

Check out some of the responses from the happy brides and grooms who have enjoyed a Kristy's cake at their wedding on our testimonial page.

To discuss your wedding cake, pop into Kristy's Bakery on Eversley Road, Sketty, Swansea, or call us on 01792 201479 and ask to speak to Antonio.
