Yummers cheesecake comes home to Birch Bay

A Birch Bay couple catering to the county’s sweet tooth now has their products available for their neighbors.

Sheryl and Fred Yockim opened Yummers in Lynden in December and Bay Center Market in Birch Bay now sells slices of the company’s toothsome cheesecake.

If your idea of being creative with cheesecake is topping it with cherries, Sheryl Yockim will open your eyes and make your mouth water. Yockim has baked about 20 versions of cheesecake so far, including lemon, triple chocolate, cinnamon-apple, peaches and cream, chocolate chip, and Chambord. “I think of something really good and put it in cheesecake!” she said.

Of course, it’s not as simple as throwing some additional ingredients into a cheesecake. Before she presents any new variety, Yockim experiments to find the appropriate modifications. Her basic cheesecake recipe was passed down to her 20 years ago by a family member and Yockim has been designing new variations since then. She especially enjoys utilizing fruit in her cheesecakes and eagerly anticipates the upcoming berry season.
