Home-baked Cheesecake Challenge: Flavour #19 Italian Cheesecake (torta de ricotta y mascarpone)

I have tried mascarpone in my Avocado cheesecake recipe, this time I tried a combination of Italian cheese – Ricotta and Mascarpone. This is so deliciously light, fluffy and soft. Ladies, say hello to my  Cheesecake # 19 Italian Cheesecake

There are a lot of recipes of Italian cheesecake but i simply like to follow something easy to make. I found the blog of susan @stickygoeycreamychew.com,  it’s  a bit sweet but  yummy! If ever I will make this one again, I’ll reduce the sugar content. I also tried doing some sugar art, failed at the first attempt but a little success on second attempt.
