Connecting People through Cake, with vegan baker & founder of Cake or Death Katie Cross
Play • 55 min

This week's guest is Katie Cross, Founder of Cake or Death London. After a near miss at the Great British Bake-Off, Katie decided to start a vegan bakery that quickly began to supply cake & cookies wholesale to cafes, art venues and businesses across London. When Covid hit, the business took a nosedive, but a little side hustle took centre-stage.

Brave New You TRIBE podcast Host, artist & illustrator, Lou Hamilton chats with Katie as they discuss how, dressed in pink leopard boxes Katie's tray bake brownies began to snowball. Everyone wanted to send them to loved ones & feel connected through cake. Arguably the best vegan brownies you've ever tasted, they are delivered across the UK, directly through your letterbox, with a heartwarming message. Scaling fast under such testing circumstances is no mean feat, and in this way this Woman of Courage brings us her Story from the Edge.
