Happy New Year !!!!! Hello 2015. It’s a brand new year. Do you have any New Year Resolutions? I have decided to attend the gym more frequently this year. I signed up last year and it took me about 4 months to see the inside of the gym. This year i am going to do so much better. The weight isn’t going to shift itself. Oh and i’m also going to juice more often. My Mr. got me a juicer last year when i was on my juicing obsession. The juicer is currently packed up in it’s box. So this 2015 i plan on going to gym often and stick to healthier eating choices. I will be sharing those recipes on here.
Let’s talk about this red velvet cheesecake cake. I have baked it a total of 6 times and have never been able to photograph it. It’s a favourite of my daughter Esme. We had it for as a dessert for Christmas dinner and I made this as per her request for New Year’s Day. I don’t know quite what happened with colour of the red velvet cake. Maybe I didn’t mix in the red colour properly. For a minute I almost didn’t share it, but things like this happen. The lack of uniformity of the colour doesn’t take away from how delicious this red velvet cheesecake truly is.
The name red velvet cheesecake is quite a mouthful, then I had to go add with white chocolate cream cheese. Shame on me!!!
The red velvet cake is moist and with a smooth creamy cheesecake centre, this is just the perfect dessert to start of a new year.
I decided to decorate the cake with one of my favourite piping designs. Using a 1M open star tip I piped roses around the cake. It doesn’t take that much time or effort and you left with a very elegant and beautiful cake. This cake is both beautiful on the outside and the inside. To show how easy it is to pipe roses i made a short video.
