Cheese Cake

Birthday Celebration @ Hard Rock Cafe

My birthday dinner this year is a very memorable one. My bf treated me a meal at Hard Rock Cafe.

I just love the environment there. Yellow and warm lightings created a cosy ambient in the restaurant. Every night, starting from 10.30pm onwards, there will be a live band performing in the restaurant. This creates a more lively ambient.

Most of the drinks in the menu has alcoholic content in it. As I am allergy to alcohol, I ordered something fruity and without any alcohol. Berrilicious is the name of the drink.

Recipe: Mango Cheesecake

My aunt is good in baking and cooking. She buys lots of cooking books and make reference from there.

One day I came across this new cookbook which teaches on how to bake cheese cakes. Lots and lots of cheese cakes recipe can be found.

I am not a big fan of cheese cake but I like to bake. So my aunt and I decided to bake this mango cheesecake.

She bought some mangoes from market and we are ready to bake a cake.

Before I share the recipe with you, let me show you my result.

Tripple Decker Cheesecake @ Coffee Bean | Dessert

After a great dinner with YH, we walked walked in Qbay. Then continue our gathering at Coffee Bean.

She had a cup of Mocha Latte and myself had a cup of Vanilla Latte. I luv latte.

We’ve order a cake to share – Tripple Decker Cheesecake.

The first layer (bottom to top) is classic cheesecake. At the bottom of the classic cheesecake, I feel that the layer like some buttered biscuit, but it doesn’t taste like digestive biscuit.

Second layer is mocha cheesecake and the top layer is oreo cheese.

For the bottom layer of classic cheesecake, it taste slightly sour and the cheese taste is not too heavy. The mocha layer is rich with mocha taste and yet there is a hint of sour taste. As for the top layer, the oreo cheese… mm… there’s only a hint of oreo taste. On top of the cake, I think it is spread with some oreo biscuits crumble. Overall this cake taste good, not too sweet.
