Strawberry and white chocolate cheesecake: Cute little cake

 Sometimes you don't need any reasons to make something special ^^ and I believe that each day is special.

 Waking up in each morning, see the people you love, and you can spend another day with them, it's special enough. So, why don't you make something cute and delicious for them today?, hehe. 
This cheesecake is very easy to make, no oven need and the look of it is so cute, right? I use 2 kinds of cheese, cream cheese and soft cheese (laughing cow), because soft cheese is sweet without tangy taste and the texture is softer. But you can use only cream cheese if you like, ^^.  The longest process for this cheesecake is chilling, let the cheesecake firm enough before adding the jelly will prevent the jelly to blend into the cheesecake, so, don't rush. 
Serve this cake with a cup of hot tea is recommended as the cheesecake is quite rich, hot tea will make it lighter ^^.

  2. wow these are so adorable!! Am definitely going to try making these! Did you cut the strawberries in slices or in half? If you cut them in slices how did you stop them from falling/flopping over? x

  9. Yes, you can use gelatin sheets or powder, if using gelatin powder, soften it in 1 1/2tbsp water.

  11. No, the egg is important in this recipe, try using pasteurised egg if you concern.
