Dark Chocolate Cheesecake


It’s a promise to Jacky S that I will make a cake and bring to Singapore.  This one is adapted from the Cake Boss.  I am not a fans of him.  The program is ridiculous, to me.  But when I searched for chocolate cheesecake recipe, a photo of his cake pleased me.  Here is it!   Mine used 85% dark chocolate, yielding seductive colour. Sweetness reduced significantly.  Guilty feeling slashed 🙂

Why did I take the efforts?  Because he is a very kind person.   His door is always open to offer help.  Indeed wish to thank for his kindness.  Hope that I can put the cake in the refrigerator in the plane, to keep it in a good shape.  Hope Jacky will like it.  Ah, his birthday is 22nd Oct.  Happy Birthday in advance!
