More than a cake...
Hey Nutjobs, thanks for stopping by!
I'm Marina, a founder of Nutjob....and as crazy as it seems, I'm in love with all things cakes. There's just something about a cake, something about it's shape.... you can sit around it and share it with people...."It's hard to remain enemies when you've broken bread together."
On top of that, I've also been trying to find a way to enjoy desserts in a sustainable and healthy way, and always knew there must be a way. I wanted to create a cake that's good for us and good for our land.... and wanted to show kids around the world they can enjoy a cake without feeling sick, and to prove that we can all eat a cake or two and feel good about it...
What you see in our beautiful photos taken by our friend photographer Elle Hall (make sure to stop by and say hi to Elle https://www.ellehallcreative.com/ ) is the final result, our cake making starts a long way before the actual creation - we carefully select each ingredient from clean sources,
we choose Australian, and organic/sustainable farming where possible...
We have visited the farms, walked the soil, and know our friends farmers by name.
The ingredients we take home are in their purest and as true to their natural form as possible. It is important to us that we know where and how each and every ingredient is grown and harvested,
natural clean sources with good energy is the very heart of our cakes.
Every single dessert is uniquely handcrafted for your special occasion, styled with organic pesticide free flowers or native wild greenery, beautifully wrapped and delivered to your home or directly to your event venue.
Our Impact on the Planet
We all know that prioritizing Australian and local produce has been proven to reduce food miles - for those of you that don't know much about the food miles....food miles equal the distance the food has travelled to us. Reducing food miles lessens our dependence on fossil fuels, and in return it reduces air pollution... air that we all breathe, air that our children breathe....
If we can keep our air and soil clean, we can preserve genetic diversity, which means that family farms are able to grow variety of produce and attract variety of animals,
which enhances biodiversity and gives more food options for all of us.
We strongly believe that supporting local community has a long-term economic impact. Buying from small businesses that produce or source local products keeps the $ in the community, which is why we source more than 95% of our ingredients locally, from small sustainable and organic family farms, from people with good hearts and good energy. Small family businesses are more than just a business,
it's a way of life we're trying to preserve for future generations.
We are committed to gathering the freshest seasonal produce from Australian sustainable and organic farms... sustainable and organic farms are the ones that pledge to use sustainable practices, meaning no chemicals and pesticides in your food. This way our Farmer friends preserve the health of the food, the people and our land.
Dedicated to the folks that don't like 'traditional 'sweets, to the kids and big kids with dietary requirements, and to the ones that are passionate about health and simply want to feel good in the long run!
Everything created at Nutjob is naturally gluten free, dairy free, paleo (grain free), processed sugar free, preservative free, additive free.....we instead reached out into Nature to create the healthiest desserts on Earth....that taste like treats.
To make us all feel better and healthier in the long run, we keep challenging every single recipe and always at least halve the amount of sweetener, human bodies don't need that much sugar, especially our kids......we instead focus on seasonal produce and allow natural flavors to shine through.
You won't see butters or oils in our creations either.... in return, the energy value of our desserts is naturally much lower than any other 'conventional' dessert...this makes our cakes lighter on your and your kids' tummy,
leaving feeling light, so you can even pop in two slices at once ...you've never tasted anything like it!
We're happy to swap ingredients to suit your dietary needs....if you suffer from any allergies or food intolerance, feel free to reach out, we'll do our best to personalize your Nutjob experience!
