Cheesecake Funk (Season 5 episode 5)

Owner and head baker Vanessa Drews started Cheesecake Funk™ in 2003 to share her love of cheesecake with family and friends. In August 2019, Vanessa made the life-changing decision to step away from her legal career and step into a new path of growing her Cheesecake Funk™ business full-time. From home kitchen to commercial kitchen and onto wholesale with various restaurants.


Vannesa turned a hobby into a thriving business with her unique and delicious cheesecake enjoyed by none other than Prince himself, who was credited with helping name her business. Connect with Vanesa at Cheesecakefunk.com
