I made this at thanksgiving for the first time and now I have many orders from family and friends to make them their own for Christmas!!
the name says it all
i made this cake for my daughter's birthday n evryone loved it.i made the crust of chocolate sandwich cookies without almonds.it looked very elegant n tasted even better.it had real creamy n smooth texture and no one realised that it wasn't baked!!
The cheesecake flavor was delicious; although, I had trouble with the crust. I follow the instructions and the crust just crumble it never held together. I am a first timer so I don't actually know what went wrong.
