This friday is a well spent day with my friends ,I did an extra cake , a sponge cake with pineapple,orange and banana flavour ,I used Cheese and butter cream frosting on top. I also practice how to pipe but unfortunately the cake gave in. I guess it was too soft and the icing is quite heavy. that’s only my guess 🙂

Anyhow, my friends and I ate the cake and cheesecakes with delight and laughter. The cheesecake is perfect in taste and texture…must be! considering this is my 42nd flavour.. I’m down to eight more.. more push!

I combined the puree of fresh nectarine with the cheese mixture and top it with sour cream and peaches.

I also added a heart-shaped nectarine inside the cheesecake and look who got the first heart?

I like to bake something that is not popular at the market, indeed,it was hard to find fresh fig at the supermarket here! I know there’s dry figs everywhere but I like to use the fresh one with my 40th cheesecake. I was airing my problem to my consultant and he’s kind of …

you’re crazy! why doing all of these cheesecakes! ( nope, there was no eyes movement but I saw some faint smile on his lips)

aha! I think you know where I can find fresh fig? don’t you?

he chuckled !

Oh! please only few pieces will do!

Crazy!

end of conversation…I’m smiling..he is smiling and you’re smiling..I know!

Ladies, this cheesecake is very light and not too sweet, good for an afternoon tea with friends. Just for the record, I gave my consultant a small slice of this mini cheesecake, like a teaspoon in size (just for a taste) and he still uttered the word “crazy” 🙂 hahaha I know he likes it! Maybe I should just name this as “crazy cheesecake” 😉

Cheers,
