Tips on cutting cheesecake

Cutting a cheesecake can be a bit messy..(or any other cake, but cheesecake in particular is extra messy for me, and just won’t work with the usual ‘cake knife’ ๐Ÿ˜€ )

I’d like to share with you the best way to cut it into perfect slices ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • use a normal long & sharp knife
  • run it under hot water
  • wipe the knife dry using a cloth / towel
  • cut the cheesecake! you’ll get perfect lines
  • and when your knife gets dirty, just clean it and repeat ๐Ÿ˜‰

hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

Just look at it, ain’t it just tempting ๐Ÿ˜‰


Cheesecake + choc cake

inspired by the Crumb Boss‘s Red Velvet Cheese Cake, I made this chocolate cake + cheesecake = Chocolate Cheese Cake ๐Ÿ™‚

it has two layers:

+ bottom layer: moist chocolate cake

+ top layer: vanilla cheese cake with choc cake crumbs

and I covered the whole cake with butter cream ๐Ÿ™‚

I sure hope Habsah from Cherating likes the cake she ordered, and a happy birthday to her sweet daughter Humaira ๐Ÿ˜‰ thanks for ordering ๐Ÿ™‚
