About Muddy Paws Cheesecake

After growing up in the restaurant industry and around great Chicago cheesecake, Muddy Paws Cheesecake owner, Tami Cabrera, recognized she wanted to create a cheesecake product all her own. To match Tami's personality and spirit, Muddy Paws Cheesecake would have to be unique and true, superb New York / Chicago style cheesecake. It would also have to have more flavors -- 222 and counting-- than anyone else in the world!

Tami started Muddy Paws Cheesecake in 1993 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Muddy Paws Cheesecake remains today one of five cheesecake bakeries in the nation that crafts cheesecake from scratch, artisan style, just like you’d make at home.

The History of Cheesecake

Cheesecake is not a modern invention and a cheesecake company is not original. Cheesecakes may well have been the first desserts ever made.

Ancient Greeks are credited as the originators of cheesecake. First, made to fortify athletes during the first Olympic Games in 776 B.C. and later they were made by brides for gifts to friends of their grooms, thus commencing the wedding cake tradition. Upon Roman conquest of Greece and as Julius Caesar conquered the continent, a great variety of cheesecakes were spawned. The mixture of traditions eventually led to the development of our traditional all-American style cheesecake.
