St David’s Day (Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant) is the feast day for Wales’s patron saint, so Llanelli’s biggest bakery is marking the occasion in style.
Jenkins the Bakers will be rolling out patriotic products to make March 1st a real feast.
“There will be a proper Welsh theme to our products before, during and immediately after St David’s Day,” said operations director Russell Jenkins.
“We are already well known for helping to put the accent on all things Welsh at our bakery and our shops – and this year is no exception to the rule as we celebrate St David’s Day.’
Among the products hitting the shops this week are –
A new ‘Sheep Cupcake’, Welsh Cakes, Bara Brith, Teisin Lap (cake on a plate), A Welsh-themed cupcake, the Welsh Pastie and new Jam Splits.
“We pride ourselves as being a bakery business which knows its customers and we know how people love to celebrate St David’s Day,” added Mr Jenkins.
“All our staff will be dressing up to mark our patron’s day and we take this opportunity of wishing all our customers a very pleasant St David’s Day.”
