Cariad Sws for Dydd Santes Dwynwen

Dydd Santes Dwynwen Haput!

Cariad - Welsh for Love, Darling
Sws - Welsh for Kiss 

Tomorrow, the 25 January not only marks Burns Night in Scotland, but in Wales it marks St Dwynwen's Day. 

Yes we have our very own Valentines Day in Wales known as Dydd Santes Dwynwen.  St Dwynwen is The Welsh Saint of Love and Lovers.  Follow this link to read and learn more about Wales Patron Saint of Love, otherwise feast your eyes on some home-made vegan Welshcakes .   


Whether your Welsh or not, you should make some of these for your loved ones Or  just treat yourself.  For the recipe for the vegan Welshcakes, follow this link.  I am am sharing this with Kimmy at Healthy Vegan Fridays;  and Inheritance Recipes challenge set by Solange at Pebble Soup.  The theme this month is Fresh Start hosted by  Coffee and Vanilla.

  7. These look fab - I'm always a fan of discovering veganised versions of traditional recipes. Oh and learning new things, like the existence of Dydd Santes Dwynwen!

  8. Your lovely gift of Welshcakes and now this post has really made me want to make a batch - role on the weekend! CT reminded me that we were going to visit St Dwynwen's church up on Anglesea when we were there last summer, but we were too tight to pay the parking, so missed it!!!

    2. Heart shaped Welshcakes, perfect for my Welshman on his birthday which is the day after St David's - if he'd been born a day earlier he would have been David :-)
