Hi everybody...Here is the recipe for Blueberry Cheese Cakelets - which is adapted from Alex Goh's Fantastic Cheesecake book...This is suppose to be a Mango Cheesecake, but because I have some extra blueberry filling in my fridge so I omit the mango instead. It should have a biscuit base as well, but sadly it didnt stick onto the cake so in the end, I removed it out in the end...But here's the full recipe of it..Try out the whole recipe as I've tried it before and it taste delicious....




INGREDIENTS:
Cake Base:

Digestive biscuit base

Filling:
(A)
500g Cream Cheese
120g Sugar
30g Cornflour

(B)
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 Lemon zest (grated)
150g Mango

(C)
3 Eggs

(D)
150g Whipping Cream

(E)
Some Mango Slices

METHOD:
1. Press the digestive biscuit base onto the bottom of a greased 20cm springform tin (I used a muffin tray instead). Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
2. Cream (A) until light and smooth.
3. Place (B) in the blender and blend until smooth. Add it into (A) and mix until well blended. (I skip this part too).
4. Add (C) one at a time and cream until smooth.
5. Add (D) and cream until well combined. Pour the cheese filling over the prepared biscuit base.
6. Bake in waterbath at 160 C for 60-70 minutes or until firm. (I did not use waterbath method).
7. Remove the cake from the oven and set aside to cool. Refrigerate the cake for 5 hours.
8. Remove the cake from the tin. Arrange mango slices on top and glaze it with instant jelly glaze. Coat the sides with toasted almonds. (I skip this part and decorate it with cream cheese icing and blueberry filling on the top instead).



Regards...May yummy

Thanks Jimmy...Actually this is my second time to decorate a cake. I learnt the piping technique from a Wilton VCD which I bought. The Wilton decorating course is really pricey in Malaysia therefore I just learn from the cd...Hehehehe.

Let me check with the person I got the cream cheese recipe from. If she is okay with it then I will post it.

May May,

About the Wilton VCD, where did you buy it from? Can you tell me details of the VCD, whether it comes with books and VCD? What are the things taught in the VCD, etc...

I am interested in cake piping technique but dunno where to get proper learning materials.

Thanks!

Irenechin: Thanks alot for helping me to resize.

Didally; Thanks

Hi Foodz,

So sorry actually it is a DVD, not VCD. The name of the DVD is the Wilton Cake Decorating Easy as 1-2-3. Sorry but I can't really remember how much it is though. From the DVD, you can learn the basic piping techniques such as the star tips, round tips, ribbon & leaves tips, and the specialty tips. It will also teach you how to make the basic buttercream which you can use to pipe on cakes. But I never tried it as I find the sugar content is way too high for my liking.

You can get the DVD from this address in Malaysia. There are many other DVD's which you can get from there too as they are the main distributor of Wilton Products. I got most of my cake decorating tools from there too...But of course I only got the basic ones. Heheheh

International Centre of Cake Artistry (ICCA) Sdn Bhd
16-B, 1st & 2nd Floor,
Jalan 14/20, Section 14,
46100 Petaling Jaya,
Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia.

Tel: 603-7960 0388
Fax: 603-7960 6833

Here's their website for you to check out before heading there:
http://www.2decoratecakes.com/index.htm

Hope the above info is good enough..

Regards...May yummy

Hello everybody, I have just checked with the owner of Cream Cheese Frosting recipe and she says that it is okay with it to post it here. So here it is:

FROSTING:
200 g cream cheese softened
3/4 cup sifted icing sugar

METHOD:

1. Beat cream cheese with 2 tbsp diced mango pieces until fluffy and smooth. (I didnt include the mango pieces)
2. Gradually add in icing sugar 1 tbsp at a time and beat till creamy and well combined.

Anyway, here is her blog. Check it out. She's really talented.
