A Damn Good Cheesecake

It looks like it is going to be another relaxing weekend and time to catch up with reading and doing some blogging. But I was wrong, one local call and another from Singapore requesting a cheesecake (9″x9″) each for birthday dinner party on saturday night. Sounds great but hmmm… means no rest and no relaxation or no do spa. Jak requested the same cake that he requested a month ago. Therefore without any choice I have to bake this marble cheesecake for Jak and Jeremy. I stumble upon this design when I visited the Jam Bakery. Jam Bakery is located in Hong Kong and run by two young lovely ladies Anita Chow and Sanny Kee. Both of them even had written a dual language cake book named “Everyday Treats”. I really like their marble cake design as it looks so LV.
For this cheesecake I used oreo biscuit, butter and toasted almond bits for the crust. As for the cheese, I used cream cheese, sugar, eggs, hazelnut syrup, corn flour and sour cream. Keep a bit of the creamcheese and mix it with chocolate syrup to make the star design on the surface of the cake. Once done, it is ready for baking.

I went through the fridge and took out all the fruits and start doing the cake decoration. Once complete, next be the glacing. Glacing the surface is to give the cake itself a fresher look. Lastly will be piping the greetings. This cake looks lovely and weights about 2.5kg.

Later that Saturday night, I got a SMS from Jeremy, “A damn good cheesecake which worth waiting for”.

Thanks Jak and Jeremy !!!

    Looks very LV like you said. How do you anchor the fruits down since the lot is resting on the surface at one corner?

    wmw: It is not difficult to anchor the fruits. as the cheesecake is soft, press the fruits a bit against the surface of the cake. Stack a bit of the fruits then glaze the fruits, it will bind the fruits together,

    boo_licious: Very true.

    jeremy: Thank you, great to know your family likes the cake so much. Wanna do food tasting at your house again?

    Just adore that fruits decor. Must have taken quite sometime to cut them up into such attractive pieces.

    Big Boys Oven,

    What kind of glaze did you use for the fruit and did you glaze the cheesecake as well?

  • Oh for the love of food!

    teckiee: Dreams will truely come true and even bigger.

    babe_kl: I am churning my kitchen 24 hours now to serve your command! :)

    tummythoz: It took less than 10mins to deco this cake.

    lee ping: I use apricot jam as glaze, you need to heat up the jam until it melts. Yes I did glaze the surface of the cheesecake and it looks better, nicer and fresher.

    oh for the love of food: Thanks, I see you are also doing well, love your up side down pineapple cake.

    precious_pea: No need to diet lar!!!

    I love your cake design. It really is innovative. What kind of hazelnut syrup did you use so that it wouldn’t darken the cake? I love hazelnut cheesecake, beautiful cake!
