Marina is the woman behind nut job bakery, aka, the best cakes in the universe.  We'll get to the cakes in a minute - first I need to tell you about Marina.  You know when you enter a room and don't know anyone and there's one person you notice straight away and know that you want to be their friend?  At an event (haha, I know, a what?!?!) last year, that was how I met Marina.  She was so comfy with her own cool self and had the warmest friendliest vibes surrounding her.  So I made a beeline, we got chatting, I found out she's from Croatia, makes cakes and loves tees and margarita's.  Our friendship was sealed.

So to her cakes -  she's on a mission to create the healthiest cake community in the world.   could you actually have a better mission?!   And I do believe she's on track to reach that goal.  She's making "simple, imperfect, made from nature, consciously crafted, naturally grain free, gluten free and diary free" delicious, organic cakes and desserts.  holy shit, yes please!   I've had the pleasure of consuming cakes from Nutjob Bakery on several occasions and they're genuinely amazing.  

So now that you're really hungry, make a snack and read this short and sweet peek inside the life of @nutjobbakery Marina Rosta. xo, Linda
