Yesterday, @emily_olsonnnnn, Molly and I picked up @cheesecakefunk! Then, @emily_olsonnnnn helped me “design” the cheesecake! I love that the ingredients came separately because it maintained the integrity of the cheesecake, but also made for a fun family activity!
More about the business:
Their mission is to: “Create an out of this world cheesecake experience and bring a quality dessert to the Twin Cities and beyond. We strive to provide outstanding, flavorful cheesecakes to customers for any occasion.”
Cheesecake Funk™ was started by owner and head baker, Vanessa Drews, in 2003 to share with family and friends. In 2008, our cheesecakes became the only dessert offered at McMahon’s Irish Pub, in South Minneapolis. After a tragic event, the pub burned down in 2010 and Vanessa chose to focus on her full-time job as a Senior Paralegal.
Plans of baking cheesecakes for large-scale consumers were put on hold. However, cheesecake continued to be a staple dessert that was requested by family and friends.
In August 2019, Vanessa made the life-changing decision to step away from her legal career and step into a new path of growing her Cheesecake Funk™ business full-time.
Now that I look at photos on their website, we definitely should have put the whipped cream down first and then the strawberries on top. That would have, at the very least, made for a more Instagrammable photo! 😂 Either way, it was still insanely delicious! I am a huge cheesecake crust fan and this gave me so much more crust than normal and it was absolutely divine! Also, the whipped cream? To die for! Seriously, this is the best cheesecake I’ve ever tried and I highly, highly recommend you order one ASAP!
