MEET KAILA - HEAVENLY CHEESECAKES

What is your position at Heavenly Cheesecakes and how big is your team:
I have been the owner of Heavenly Cheesecakes for two years now, along with my Dad. You will see me in here most days, making your morning coffees, serving your delicious treats and helping you with all of your event catering needs. We have a wonderful team of 5 other girls, each of who play various roles within our business, including cake making and decorating and customer service.

What are the most popular items this time of year:
Cheesecakes are a big Easter favourite, especially our refreshing fruity flavours. We can also custom make Easter themed cakes for all tastes and budgets. Chocolate cakes are always popular. Pavlovas, Lemon Meringues and Fruit Flans are also a big hit for family get togethers anytime of year.

What is your favourite Heavenly Cheesecakes product: 
On a daily basis, my favourite is of course our superfood smoothies, which give me a healthy kick start to the day! In particular, our ‘Nutty-Choc-a-Nana, with an added shot of coffee if you feel you need that morning caffeine hit!! As an occasional treat, I can’t go past our delicious creamy baked cheesecake, warmed up and topped with our homemade berry compote! My other favourites are our Housemade Vanilla Slice, Red Velvet Mudcake with Cream Cheese Frosting, and our Death by Chocolate, which is in fact Gluten Free (trust me, you can't even tell!).

What is the best part about your job:
I really enjoy being able to interact with people everyday, whether it’s a quick chat at the coffee window, or sitting down with them to help organise their upcoming event cakes and desserts! I also love being able to use my creativity. Coming up with new recipes, ideas and decorating every cake uniquely is alot of fun. 

Do you have a favourite customer moment: 
Would definitely have to be the big smiles on kid’s faces the moment they see their birthday cake! The way they light up is ever so heart- warming and fulfilling. 

What makes Heavenly Cheesecakes a great part of the Rowville community:
Our promotions such as ‘street of the week’ and our social media activities allow people to communicate and engage with us and with each other. Our outdoor seating area allows for families and friends to sit down and have a catch-up over a coffee and slice… and the best part is WE ARE PET FRIENDLY! We are a proud ongoing supporter of Breast Cancer Network Australia, in which we have their donation tins in our shop, as well as fundraising and donating during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In January we donated $1 from every coffee to the bushfire appeal, and managed to raise $688 total. 
 
We have worked closely with our friends at F45 Rowville, Rush HQ Play Centre, Lysterfield Wolves Junior Football Club, Mulgrave Country Club, Rowville Knights Football Club and other local organisations, in which we support through various promotional activities. We also continuously participate in local fundraisers such as St Simon’s Fete, Club Fundraiser Trivia nights and more.
