Beatrix is a tiny bakery in North Melbourne opened in 2011 run by Nat Paull and her killer cake squad who are dedicated to baking great cakes from good things for you. We are faithful to seasonal produce sourced from farmers markets, growers and hands on producers. We are about doing what we do best with no frou frou but just the kind of cakes that taste wonderful. Our recipes are drawn from Nat’s extensive pastry chef experience, a crazy amount of cookbooks and nostalgic favourites. We have a rare ability to meld the traditional pillars of cake baking with with our own brand of irreverent innovation.
Nat’s career was sparked at the age of seven after baking a buttercake for her mother. She eschewed Dolly Magazine for food magazines and earned her industry stripes under foodsmiths Maggie Beer, Greg Malouf and Stephanie Alexander. Nat started Little Bertha Bakery (wholesale) in 2005 which was sold in 2008 to make way for Beatrix.
Our cakes and sweet treats have appeared in The Age Epicure, Jetstar Magazine, Broadsheet, Good Food website and Gourmet Traveller. We have appeared on the Postcards Melbourne bakery special and at Flour Markets.
Beatrix was named for “tricks with the beater” and a childhood love of Beatrix Potter. A perfect name!
We beat. You eat.
