this oreo cheesecake was made for yanyan, my sunday school teacher that will be leaving us. i wasn’t there for the farewell party cause i had a running race (don’t ask :S), so i didn’t get to taste the cake.
the orginal recipe only has two layers-vanilla and oreo, but to make a bigger cake i adapted the recipe and added a third chocolate cheese layer and a chocolate ganache glaze to make the cake look neater.
the lettering was done with some leftover white chocolate ganache from sandwich cookies i did earlier. and do the letters look like they’re piped from a tube of mayonnaise? i think they do :P! my piping skills are bad, so i can only do big, bold letters 😦 the fish at the bottom was orignally a failed smiley face hahah.
but i like the border of silver dragees and red sugar hearts 🙂
made this to use up some of the mangoes mum bought. they were really sweet after letting them ripe for a few days 🙂 this was really easy to whip up, and it was yummy too. only thing is that i think that there wasn’t enough mango flavour in the filling, but i already used the 3 mangoes i had left on hand – one for the cheese filling, one diced and mixed into the cheese and one for the jelly topping.
i planned to use mango jelly for the topping, but parknshop ran out of mango flavoured jelly powder! argh, so i had to use orange instead, which resulted in this overly-bright colour that sort of hid the mango slices on top. :S an important note is that you must add the jelly in two batches, as the mango slices are likely to float around, and the first layer of jelly helps ‘stick’ them down.
made a no bake oreo cheesecake to celebrate. recipe from here.
spot the difference 😀
answer: the ‘fook’. my sis said i should pipe it on to celebrate chinese new year (which is ike 5 weeks later?!?) anyway. i liked the flavour, but it was a bit too creamy so the cheese flavour was kind of lost. i think i’ll user 200ml next time. otherwise, it was pretty good. the cookies not in the cheese mixture added a bit of contrast to the smooth filling. yes, the decor is not good, i know…must practise more!
