My good friend's birthday

This is a New Year and new vision year 2010. Have been 3 months since my last post. Guess, wat I am doing. I am in confinement in November 2009, for a month and taking care of my new born baby boy for a month. Haha...now here.... I am back ^^. My good friend's Yan birthday is in December, I wanted to make a special cake for her so I choose this Durian Dream Cheesecake.




I made a 6" miniature durian cheesecake for her and an extra 6" cake for us. I use fresh durian flesh for this cake. No artificial flavour at all. I uses Thai durian, given my brother in law. The Thai durian flesh is big, yellowish in colour, thick, sweet and smell so so nice. Simon wanted to eat it so much but I insist that I wanted to use it or my durian cheesecake.




***** Yummy yummy........Shawn loves this so much...^^
