History of Cheesecake Day

Cheesecake is one of the most delicious and indulgent desserts in the world. Over the past 100 years, cheesecake has made its mark on the world with growing popularity. That’s why in 1985 when, Patti Jewel, the daughter of a home baker who loved cheesecake, decided it needed a day of it’s own to celebrate. She spent the summer trying to perfect a homemade cheesecake and when she finally perfected her own cheesecake recipe she thought it was a time for a celebration. 

Since its inception, it has become an international holiday that people around the world love to celebrate! It’s a day to indulge and enjoy having a slice of cheesecake.
