From Pet Shop to Pastry Paradise: Serenity Cakes Brings Sweet Dreams to Porthcawl

In the picturesque town of Porthcawl, a woman named Mariah Leonhardt and her husband, Rob, embarked on a remarkable journey of transformation.


Together, they successfully turned a struggling seaside inn, the Rock Inn, into an award-winning gastropub that has become a favorite among food enthusiasts in the area.

Having achieved this remarkable feat, they were now drawn to a new challenge: an empty building right across the road that once housed a pet shop.

A New Venture Begins

Two months ago, Mariah and Rob made a decision that would bring their dreams to life once again.

They took over the rent for the vacant space with the hope of turning it into something exciting.


For Mariah, this presented a perfect opportunity to fulfill her long-term dream of starting her own bakery.

Her passion for baking was nurtured during her time in the Philippines, and she was eager to share her love for creating delicious treats with her community.

Serenity Cakes: A Sweet Haven

Now, after weeks of preparation and anticipation, Serenity Cakes opened its doors to the public.

Located in Victoria Avenue, the bakery offers an enticing selection of custom-made cakes, cupcakes, and other delectable sweet treats.

One of their unique offerings, the Ube ice cream cake, has already received rave reviews, setting the stage for Serenity Cakes to become a hub of culinary creativity and delight.


A Unique Selling Point for the Community

Mariah envisions Serenity Cakes as more than just a place to buy treats; she aspires to provide ready-made occasion cakes that customers can conveniently pick up.

This is a novel concept for Porthcawl, where such a service has been absent.

Mariah’s ambition is to create a destination where people can easily find exceptional cakes, a concept that has already garnered excitement within the community.

A Vision for the Future

Inside the charming bakery, customers are welcomed by a simple yet classic ambiance.

The display of delectable cakes entices visitors to indulge in a delightful takeout treat or to relax and savor some coffee and cake in the cozy seating area.


As Serenity Cakes evolves, Mariah plans to enhance the décor and expand the variety of cupcakes on offer.

Her vision includes hiring additional staff to meet the growing demand for their delightful creations.

Continuing Success

Given Mariah’s previous success with the Rock Inn, she approaches her latest venture with a sense of optimism and determination.

The new bakery has already received a warm reception, with people from the community stopping by to support the endeavor.

Mariah believes that with hard work and dedication, Serenity Cakes has the potential to become a significant success story in Porthcawl.


A Journey of Success and Recognition

Mariah and Rob’s journey of transforming the Rock Inn into a thriving gastropub has not gone unnoticed.

Their dedication to culinary excellence, evident in the popular steaks, unique pizzas, and the infusion of Filipino flavors, has earned them the prestigious Regional Gastropub of the South East award at the Food Awards Wales.

A Welcoming Haven for Foodies

As Serenity Cakes flourishes and the Rock Inn continues to be a culinary destination, Mariah and Rob have become pioneers in offering delightful gastronomic experiences in Porthcawl and beyond.

With their remarkable achievements, they have turned their ventures into cherished spots for foodies and have left an indelible mark on the local dining scene.

Whether one craves a memorable dining experience or a mouthwatering sweet treat, Porthcawl now boasts an array of choices that cater to all palates.
