Cappuccino Cheesecake

Here's the anniversary cake that i've baked for him...not a heart shape cake.. nor a rich sexy chocolate cake either... just a simple coffee cake... after all these years and a 13mths old baby in hand.. all u want is to get ur cake done in a jiffy...

I choose this cappuccino cheesecake simply cos he loves coffee in his cake... well we r espresso junkie anyway!.. glad he loves the richness of this cake...
