Anthony Dunn, owner of The Cheesecake Room.

Anthony Dunn began his business, called The Cheesecake Room, by accident after talking to someone ahead of their birthday.

They liked cheesecake, he could make a mean cheesecake – and the rest is history.

Mr Dunn created a special cake for the event, the person loved it, told someone else about the quality of the product and more orders came flooding in.

Some of the bespoke cheesecakes created by the company.

Mr Dunn said: “Following the first order, the business has snowballed massively to where I am now.

“What’s different about The Cheesecake Room is it’s a totally bespoke service.

“Everything is made to order around the customers’ requirements, including the flavour, the biscuit base, and the design.

“There are no limits and there is nothing I won’t put into one, from a favourite chocolate bar, a favourite sweet, or even a favourite drink.

“I am amazed at just how the business has grown, with a customer base stretching from right across York to South Cave.

“It just keeps growing.

“It’s nice to see that something positive can come out of such a terrible time, and now, during lockdown 2.0 I am providing people with a smile as I offer delivery of their creations right to their front door.

“I also cater for gluten and dairy free customers, and also vegans, with the vegan Lotus Biscoff cheesecake a big hit.”
