Why Every Cheesecake Has A Story...
Alex and I had always dreamed of starting a family. When we found
out we were expecting our first child after 11 years of trying, we were
overjoyed and couldn't wait to welcome our little girl into the world.
Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned. I suffered a miscarriage
and lost our baby, leaving us devastated and heartbroken. I didn't
know how I would ever be able to move on and find a purpose in life
back again.
As time passed by, and with the support of my husband, my family,
and close friends, I slowly began to heal and decided to channel my
grief into baking since it has always been a passion of mine…
This is how Camila’s Pâtisserie was born, a small special place named
after our daughter, that specializes in Burnt Basque Cheesecakes,
where the love for baking became the perfect way to honor our child
and keep her memory alive.
We know our daughter is with us every step of the way, and we are
grateful for the love and support of those around us.
