Cheese Temptation

Cant wait for the week to end... too many things going on... issues and i am not liking it at all... felt like running away fm it but how lol :o((((((

Anyway I finally finished preparing the long winded cheesecake yesterday after we got home fm Sonia's doc appt. She had her Hepatitis B and H1N1 injection and will hv to go for another jab in a month time.. poor girl... good news is.. doc said shes one healthy girl.. :o)

Honestly i wud rate this cheesecake as not an easy peasy kinda cheesecake.. its time consuming.. it has a few steps (a put off.. i know) and uses a lot of ingredients.. nevertheless i  assure u that this is one super rich (fattening too hehhe) cheesecake that u wouldnt want to miss out..

Pour the chocolate glazing over the chocolate mousse. Keep it refrigerated for 20 mins to let it set
Unmould and decorate side of the cake with cream shell. Place some white chocolate shaving on top if u like.

Chocolate Glazing
300g cooking chocolate (melted)

Cook milk and whipping cream until boil. Add in the melted chocolate and mix until well blended. Add in butter, mix until well blended. Set aside to cool to pouring consistency, serve immediately!

My chocolate glazing didnt turn out the way i wanted it to be.. it should be smoother.. i think i must hv added the milk mixture bef my chocolate had fully cool down.. oh well...

Hi kak rima. May I ask..  for the cheese cake, do you have to whip the whipping cream first before adding it to the mixture? Or you just add it to the mixture and then mix until well blended?

Rima said...
