Cake With... Natalia Baker

Natalia Baker

It’s our biggest pleasure to introduce you to Nat. She is the wonderful, talented lass behind the Cake & Yoga Club logo, an epic friend and all round Wonder Woman. Here’s our chat…

Tell us your story…

I’m a mid-thirties freelance graphic and web designer. Patrick and I live in north London with our 6-month old Rosanna, our lab Max, four cats and quite a few fish.

What makes you feel on top of the world?

You can’t beat a good film at the cinema, a really juicy chat over coffee or a long sunny walk. I also love getting lost in a creative project or good book. All the cliches basically!

What do you feel should be spoken about more?

The importance of healthy sleep.

How does your day start?

Early with a chatty baby! My morning routine is now a bit of a rush getting a baby, Labrador and myself ready for the day. Needless to say coffee features early.

How does your day end?

A bath then reading in bed or a podcast to fall asleep to.

One little thing that most don’t know about you?

I’m a qualified safari guide.

Do you have a personal quote or mantra?

Work for a cause, not for applause.

Nugget of advice that has stuck around?

You never know what another person is going through. We should all be more sympathetic to each other.

Your favourite yoga pose, and why?

Pigeon - I could sleep like this!

Favourite cake?

Old fashioned victoria sponge. Even better if it’s the cake batter!

What is on your baking bucket list?

I’d love to make your banana bread!

Your ultimate TLC tips?

10 deep breaths to settle an anxious mind. Massages whenever possible and a 20-minute nap can be ultra restorative.
