Purple Sweet Potato Cheesecake 


I spot a beautiful purple sweet potato cheesecake when browsing Facebook posts and determined to make one.  I used fresh sweet potato instead of the ready one.   Plus I added 10g more mashed potato with equal amount of cream.  The cake was very beautiful, especially under the afternoon sunshine in the early winter.  Like it a lot and glad to have made the choice.  Mum loved it, sister ate and ate, brother had a piece and a friend took 1/4 cake away.   Happy!  🙂   I will attempt a 20cm size next time.
