Baking Is Stressful


Sometimes. It's supposed to be relaxing but sometimes it's not. This is the cheesecake I baked using the excess cheesecake filling from the Mini Coffee Cheesecakes. I was running late and because of the excess filling, I had to bake another cake. So this one was baked in a hurry, rather reluctantly at that >.<

Fortunately, I had one half of a chocolate spongecake to use as the base. That saved me a whole lot of trouble from having to crush some biscuits and melt some butter for the base. If I had to do all that, I would have gone bonkers! LOL!


In my haste, I neglected to grease the cake pan, resulting in difficulty unmoulding the cake. Haiz.... Truth be told, I wanted to toss the excess filling into the bin but prudence prevented me from doing so.


I'm glad this cake came into being because it was pretty good. It went well with the chocolate spongecake and the taste was further enhanced by my ganache scribbles. 


For the recipe, please refer here. It's good for an 8" cake. I hope it's not stressful for you.

  3. Yes, I agree....baking is stressful sometimes...just like cooking! :D No wonder this cake looked familiar...I think you did a similar one but with chopped nuts on top.

  4. If I live next door to you, all problems solved lah. I can do errands, besides weeding your garden and help you finish all the food & bakings!

    This cheesecake looks creative and can name it Batik Cheesecake!

  12. Usually cake (pastry) baking would be stressful to me. I mean, I would start out excited, but after 10 minutes I would become bored and restless and cut corners and my "creation" would turn out crap. I have not talked to my electric mixer for quite some time now. :/
