That looks absolutely wonderful!! And how fast time flies...


Look nice. I personally never bother with fruit on top, but that photo does look good! If your ever in need of a recipe without egg in it, then I've got a recipe on my blog at


Bellini Valli

My mom always told me my life would pass before my eyes. How time does fly. If we can have delicious creamy , fruit filled desserts like this it makes the transition much easier.


I know exactly what you are talking about ... we're just baking for our 2nd daughter's 1st birthday tomorrow: New York cheesecake! If she's gonna like it? Well, we do!!!

This cheesecake looks brilliant - so creamy and decadent - I am all in favour of over celebrating birthdays - my boyfriend calls my birthday the birthday festival


This cheesecake looks really yummy! I made my first one a few weeks ago and it was nice but not really good at looking :s


Oh I love this very post - and I love to see HER again in that pic. You can be a proud Mum! Lots of love, angelika


You should try making Chèvre (goat cheese) cheesecake. It's simply divine in both flavor and texture. Make it once and you will never again bother with New York or Italian-style cheesecakes. Some cream cheese is used to cut down costs and add sweetness, however, it will have a primary flavor of Chèvre. You can make a walnut crust or, if you desire, a Belgian chocolate crust. This cheesecake is accompanied well with caramel, candied orange peel and candied walnuts.

Here is a list of ingredients. Feel free to tweak if you attempt:

Yield: 12 servings

3/4 cup walnuts, ground
1/2 cup ladyfingers, ground
1/2 cup graham crackers, ground
4 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon honey
6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1 lb. (2, 8-ounce pkgs.) full-fat cream cheese
1 1/2 lbs. Chèvre (goat cheese)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Zest of one orange, finely grated
2 egg yolks
6 eggs
Candied orange zest and walnuts


Looks wonderful!


Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter, and that cheesecake looks fantastic! (Love the banana too, LOL!)


Yum yum yum!


what a gorgeous and stylish birthday cake - I love that pile of berries - bet it tasted good enough to compensate for labour pains


looks like a gorgeous cheesecake. The banana with the candels in made me laugh


Not sure how to convert the measurments, I would love to try it, but in the meantime I'll try angelika since it's in USA measurments. Thanks so much!


Beautiful daughter Johanna and beautiful cheesecake too!


Happy birthday to me "niece"! And for my next birthday I am going to demand that you make this gorgeous cake... :)


I agree with matter what age. abirthdya SHOULD be special! a delicious cake and I love the fruit with it1
