My story


In the beginning...

It was just a girl and her cheesecake


It all started when…

What made you decide to start making cheesecake?

When I was in my early twenties, I worked at a pub that had this Irish Cream cheesecake. It wasn't anything amazing or handcrafted; I'm pretty sure it was from some mass production food company. But I loved it nonetheless, and I ate it every day (because I was 24 and could eat cheesecake every day with no actual repercussions!); it was my first real exposure to cheesecake. 

About a year in, the pub went out of business and we had to close, Where was I going to get my Irish Cream cheesecake fix?! I set out to start making cheesecake and eventually (after much trial and error) was able to pin down a formula that not only emulated the Irish Cream cheesecake from my 20's, but superseded its deliciousness. Now here we are, several years later with all kinds of variations and non-traditional flavors that continue to pop into my head at random. 


What is Tippy Star? Does that mean something?

When I was going over name after name for the perfect title for my little cheesecake empire, a friend suggested that I take a few things I love and just kind of string them together. Well, I've been enamored with stars for as long as I can remember: I have no less than 34 of them tattooed on my body! Tippy comes from my background as professional circus performer and the love of my life, the Tippy Lyra. (This is an aerial hoop rigged horizontally instead of vertically so when weight is applied it flips, like a seesaw). So no, Tippy Star does not mean anything...until now!
