Cheesecakes are every family's favourite, and a piece of cake to make - pun intended. Given a choice I'd pick the baked version over chilled anytime. Sure it may not be as healthy, but the denser and richer result is so so so worth the torturous workout after to burn it off.
We made a biscuit and melted butter base, and full fat cream cheese filling. And if that's not decadent enough for ya, whipped cream and chocolate to top it all off. Come to Mama!
I'll Take Them Big & Small
If you look closely you'll see the cake on the top left made with a layer of dark chocolate cheese at the bottom and a bright lemon cheese atop. Blueberries add a simple and elegant touch, the chocolate a welcome excess. The tiny ones, what can I say but cu~~ute!
While waiting for our cheesecakes to bake we practiced making filigree (piped decoration) and I gotta say, I'm getting the hang of this. :)
