Here’s the 2nd part :smiley: … re=related

The recipe itself tastes very delicious! I wonder, when this cheesecake will get baked, it will smell so sweet and wonderful. I am crazy for cheese layer which you mentioned that we can add, I guess increases the softness in the cafe. Too much mouth-watering one! Also, I like vanilla and orange/ lemon flavour, but as this is something new, gonna surely try for it.
