Chocoholic





This is the cheesecake I made for my brother's 19th birthday celebrations. I was planning on making the classic victoria sponge as it is one of his favourites but when I saw this in the Lorraine Pascale recipe book I couldn't resist - besides who doesn't like chocolate cheesecake covered with chocolate and then some more chocolate. 

Unfortunately, the cheesecake didn't seem to set as well as my other cheese cakes but it tasted amazing, so thats all that really matters! As you maybe able to tell I had a lot of fun with the white chocolate, the recipe suggested a much more elegant pretty style but I decided this rather more crazy style was a lot more fun. I also only had a matter of minutes before the chocolate set inside the piping bag! 

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted anything up, but I have now finished my exams and although praying for some good results I now have the rest of study leave to relax. Some much needed rest has occurred so far, but I have a long list of what I would like to do in this little interim of free time. On my list is do blog much much more now there is no school I have no excuse! I will be doing a lot more baking as it is the best thing ever so look forward to some scrumptious photos. 

P.S this recipe was from Lorraine Pascale's Home Baking Made Easy, well worth a buy for recipes from soups to sweets. I have yet to tackle all its pages but after this delight I would recommend it.
