Kristy's Bakery for Sale!

This is just a short announcement to say that Kristy's Bakery is for sale.

However, we are still open and operating as usual!

While the bakery continues to be a success and a much-loved part of Swansea, Antonio now wants to retire.

Our hope is that a new buyer will come in and take over the bakery, giving it new life in the 21st century.

If you are interested in buying the bakery, please contact us using the subject line 'Purchase enquiry'. 

You can read more about the bakery and why it is such an exciting business opportunity here.

Thank you to all our customers and we hope to see you in the bakery soon!

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.
