cardigan bay brownies


“I began baking brownies over 10 years ago for family and friends. Soon, every time I visited people, I was told ‘Don’t forget to bring the brownies’. This is when I knew I had struck upon something really special! With people saying they were the best chocolate brownies in the west – Cardigan Bay Brownies was born.”

our history

Beginning with baking

My love of baking began at a very young age. Preparing indulgent treats using simple easily adaptable ingredients can always enhance your day. Baking is in my blood, influenced by my ‘Mam’ – Marion Wheeler, my Grandmother and my father, ‘Oz’.

Mam was always producing amazing cakes and baked creations. I lingered in the background in her small kitchen, ready with a helping hand to mix, pour and most importantly, taste her masterpieces! She was a genius and had a massive impact on my baking life. My father was a cook, with his own canteen, he fed up to 300 workers per day in the old jeans factory by Theatr Mwldan in my home town of Cardigan. Between Mam and father, it’s safe to say I had a good start in the world of baking!

The dreamy filling

In 2011 I began ‘dreaming’ of my baking passion becoming my career. I plucked up the courage to ask for a stall in Cardigan indoor market and called my little venture, ‘Cariad Cupcakes’. Literally, selling ‘like hot cakes’ every Thursday my cupcakes flew to an army of buttercream and victoria sponge fans. But with a young family in tow, I took a break. With time to think, my ‘Eureka’ moment was when I realised I was regularly asked for my brownies, getting back to my baking fix, Cardigan Bay Brownies was born!

With the boom in social media, I created a Facebook and Instagram page (with difficulty!). I advertised where my slices of chocolate heaven would be sold and I began to attract a local following. Selling from an outdoor market stall at the Guildhall in Cardigan twice a week, my chocolate brownie following grew – I was baking full time.

Ingredients For The Future

With Cardigan Bay Brownies becoming a busy full-time business, attending food festivals and Christmas market events, it was time to find permanent premises! On March 16th 2019, I took the plunge, with my shop – slap bang in the middle of my home town on Cardigan High Street! A fun and vibrant workspace where my creativity can be explored using local produce the best chocolate brownies – now posted worldwide from my pretty home town in Wales.

My experimental approach in the kitchen had a solid foundation with my family influences mixed in. My chocolate brownies, blondies and cookie cups flavours change on a daily basis, exploring new flavours that reflect the seasons plus finding new tastes keeps me and my hardworking staff on our toes!

Chocolate heaven

Our first experience of Cardigan Bay Brownies was a mouth-watering one! It was a combination of Peanut butter and caramel, Mallow Blondies and Choc Orange in a treat box. Since then we have been back again and again and again. The counter is a feast for the eyes and the staff are always welcoming and smiley. There are always new treats to try which never fail to delight. Thank you for sending us to chocolate heaven every time we visit!! You have customers for life!
