A love for baking and smile making.
Hey, I'm Akilah.
The Excellent Cheesecake came to be through the serendipitous union of a love for baking and smile making. Originally from Hayward, California, I have been baking since I was young. During a bread making class in Paris, my instructor shared, "People who love baking, love giving." I realized that is precisely what I love about baking. If there's anything I enjoy more than baking and tasting cheesecake, it's giving. I enjoy putting a smile on people's faces. The joy for me is seeing the happiness when people receive it and then the delight when they taste what I've made.
