Carys Cakes

Ruth Bennett, owner of Carys Cakes (Carys is Ruth’s middle name), can be found in her kitchen baking all things yummy. Former primary school teacher and mother of 3 daughters Ruth has now been running Carys Cakes for the last ten years after giving up teaching when her children came along.

Ruth is a self taught baker and used to specialise in Wedding Cakes where she was nominated for South Wales cake maker of the year on a number of occasions.

You won’t find Ruth making wedding cakes anymore but more your simple but yummy bakes, including cupcakes (where she started), brownies, and delicious New York type stuffed cookies.

Since Sept 2020 Ruth has a very successful Etsy store and is now in the top 3% of sellers on their platform.

Whilst not baking, you will find Ruth being a taxi driver to her daughters to their many clubs and activities and if she gets some spare time then she enjoys reading and loves the odd glass of prosecco!
