Croquembouche - a wonderful alternative to traditional birthday cakes!

For over a decade Antonio has been creating Croquembouche sculptures as alternative wedding cakes in Swansea.

And he's now started making smaller scale versions of the wonderful choux pastry ball sculptures for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and other celebrations.

We love them - our light choux pastry, filled with fresh cream and covered with chocolate and caramel strands. Perfect for sharing!

Prices differ depending on size, so please get in touch via email, via Twitter or call us on 01792 201479.

Roast garlic and lavabread focaccia - photo!

We forgot to put a photo of our new roast garlic and lavabread focaccia on the last post, so here's one we took yesterday:

If you are in Sketty or Swansea for that matter pop into the bakery and grab a slice. It's 85p/100g, and we can cut it to whatever size you like.

This is a limited edition focaccia so after the weekend it's unlikely to feature again for a while (unless you all insist).

See you soon!


And, as always, remember to check out the photos of our delicious chocolate wedding cakes - these are just a few, but we have many more in the shop. Call us on 01792 201479 to book an appointment with Antonio to discuss your special day.

Celebrating the Six Nations with Kristy's Bakery!

It's that time again! The RBS Six Nations tournament. Where Wales do well and Italy do... not so well.

And this year Antonio has come up with a novel idea to celebrate the Wales vs. Italy game!

Because he's an Italian baker in a Welsh bakery he's combined the aromatic taste of roasted garlic with traditional Swansea lava-bread and mixed it in with his delicious focaccia!

It's 85p / 100g and has proved very popular so far. We buy our fresh lava-bread from Swansea Market (where else!) - keeping it local.

Pop in to give it a try and let us know what you think!


Remember, if you are looking for wedding cakes, birthday cakes or catering for your special party, give us a call on 01792 201479!

Happy new year!

In 2014 we are looking to bring to you a few new types of traditional Italian breads in addition to our Pugliese, Sicilian, Pilla, focaccia, red onion and pesto breads.
