Woohoo! Our shop, Café and Have A Go area will be open from Monday 12th July! We do still need to comply with Welsh restrictions so have to ask all of our visitors to wear masks and maintain the 2 metre rule. We're hugely exited to be able to welcome back our customers old and new and can't wait to see you! We've had to change our visiting rules and booking online via the Online Shop drop-down menu is now essential.
Mmm there is nothing that says "Welsh" more than a traditional homemade treat of a Welsh cake. Popular since the 19th century, they remain one of the treasures of Wales to this day!
This bar is a unique and patriotic treasure, the classic melt in your mouth, Wickedly Welsh moreishly milk chocolate bar infused with a pinch of nostalgia, a lightly spiced and truly delightful treat that will have you licking your lips and wanting more! The fusion of traditional sweet cinnamon spice with ground nutmeg and fresh ginger adds a touch of warmth to your palate, we can recommend this as the perfect afternoon snack and accompaniment to your cuppa!
Welsh Cakes were traditionally made by the lady of the household as a treat to serve at afternoon tea, and were also given to children with their school lunches. At one time they would be eaten regularly in farmhouses and cottages the length and breadth of Wales, and became a mainstay of the miner's lunch box.
They have gone by a few different names since their invention including “cage bach” or " pice ar y mâen" (cake on a stone) and they are also known as "Griddle Cakes", "Welsh Tea Cakes" and "Welsh Miner Cakes". The local names given to the cakes were usually derived from the Welsh name for the bakestone, and these included tishan ar y mân and tishen lechwan. They varied in size from small, round cakes to a single cake as big as the bakestone itself.
Welsh cakes are also traditionally made for celebrations and special occasions so this bar makes the perfect gift for that Welsh friend who left this beautiful land of our fathers - although we'd heartily recommend an extra bar just to treat yourself! You won’t be able to wait for the next ‘special occasion’ to grab a taste of this traditional flavoured chocolate. What really makes the Welsh Cake Bar truly authentic is the guarantee of locally sourced ingredients from Wales, and our hand-selected fair trade Ghanaian cocoa beans.
We doubt you'll find anything more Welsh than our Wickedly Welsh Moreishly Milk Welsh Cake chocolate - Once you taste it you’ll feel sorry you’ve missed out for so long so go on, treat yourself!
