Women of Influence

Tami was featured as a part of Minnesota Monthly's Women of Influence on February 14, 2012:

Tami Cabrera grew up in the restaurant industry and is the owner of Muddy Paws Cheesecake Co. After moving here from the Chicago area in 1991, Tami could not find the cheesecake she'd grown up with. After searching several years for it, she decided to make and sell her own. She rented a small hourly kitchen and within a year her business had grown enough to leave her job to take the business full-time. Today they produce some of the finest cheesecake in the nation and have won dozens of local awards. She has been featured on the Food Network, WCCO, Kare 11, Twin Cities Live, and recently was chosen to go to the White House for her work in social media. Cabrera won the Minnesota Social Media Marketer award for 2010. When she's not at the bakery, she spends time with her four small children, her three dogs, a second small business, and she volunteers at Perspectives Inc. as a guest chef. Tami also is on the Program Advisory Committee at Le Cordon Bleu.
