I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

The Will You Marry Me? Cheesecake

Hey, Cheesecake Lovers, finished decorating the Will You Marry Me? cheesecake. We had a lot of fun making the homemade chocolates, wallowing in whipped cream, eating the candy sharks and lobsters. I do believe we got carried away when it came to decorating the cake. Chocolate palm trees and sea shells were everywhere! Well, by the time the edible glitter dust settled, I know we overdid it! I figured I’d post the picture anyway. I’ll tell you one thing, though, it sure tasted delicious!! Didn’t last long, either! This is a lesson in moderation. Unfortunately, I do not seem to have any control whatsoever when it comes to cheesecake! I’ll try to curb myself next time. Happy baking!

Learning Experience

Hello, cheesecake lovers! Every day is a learning experience! It is very satisfying to learn new techniques and develop new ideas for my cakes. I recently learned how to make chocolate shoes! Since I have a shoe fetish myself, I can not only wear shoes, but eat them, too! Can’t have too many shoes!! My shoe fetish cheesecake will be on this site soon, too. Just waiting for my molds to come in. If you like shoes, we are sisters and brothers in fashion sync. So, put your best foot forward and Happy Baking!

Been working on how to make buttercream roses, too. This is new to me, but I hear practice makes perfect. Have an idea for an Easter cheesecake, too. I’ll be ready to sell soon, so all you cheesecake lovers can enjoy a little bit of heaven! If you have any favorite cheesecakes that you would like to see in my gallery, please let me know. Happy baking!

Welcome to my site

Welcome Lovers of Cheesecake! Let me take you on a little journey of the how’s and why’s my cheesecakes came to be. About twenty-five years ago, I lived in an area that literally did not know how to produce a decent cheesecake. I’ve had cheesecake that tasted like cardboard, fluff, or, if you closed your eyes, nothing at all! What I was looking for was an excellent New York Cheesecake–a full-bodied, creamy, delicious real cheesecake made with real cream cheese to die for. That’s when I decided to create my own. After I designed my cheesecake to my specifications and discerning tastes, I decided to share them with you, because, simply put, we’re worth it! My gallery contains a few of my personal creations. Every day in my test kitchen I have plans for more! Why? Because you can’t have too much cheesecake!

Soon I plan to launch my own business, so sign up for updates and stay tuned!
