For my birthday at the weekend I made this yummy, yummy strawberry cheesecake using the strawberries we picked at Kenyon Hall Farm. The recipe is from the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days book and is so delicious & rich. It has a digestive biscuit base, a cream cheese strawberry compote flavoured filling, and a mascarpone cream topping. I had to bake the cake in a water bath which ensued in chaos as the water started to leak into the cake and made the base soggy! I swear I will not make my own birthday cake next year, I will get Scott to make me one. No one should have to make their own birthday cake should they? Then again, this wasn't a traditional birthday cake. I didn't even put candles in it and have anyone sing me happy birthday!
Do you prefer a traditional birthday cake or would you have a cheesecake?
