Pacific Cheesecake Company
It took years for Karen to perfect her cheesecake recipe, and when she finally did, she couldn't keep it to herself. Today, she runs the Pacific Cheesecake Company, and spends her days with her staff baking exquisite miniature cheesecakes in a variety of flavors. These include everything from salted caramel, blueberry, and coconut raspberry to poached pear gorgonzola and rocky road. Each two-bite delight looks as good as it tastes—Karen and her wonderful employees personally decorate each individual cheesecake, adding finishing touches like a tower of toasted marshmallow or a heart made from raspberry preserves.
