Wilberfoss man finds the recipe for success with cheesecake business
A Wilberfoss man has found that starting a new business during the first lockdown was a piece of cake – cheesecake.
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.
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.”
