We had such a great day today, and I saw my sister’s lovely new house for the first time. Of course, my mom was there in her Sunday best, and looking very good indeed. Scrumptious roast pork lunch with all the trimmings was on the menu, and I had been requested to make a chocolate cheesecake, which I happily did. When my sister saw it, she exclaimed, “You really don’t do things by halves, do you?” I have to say that it was absolutely ‘to die for’. Please help yourself to a slice, but you’d better not ask how many calories, and please don’t take the white bunny. That’s my brother-in-law’s. 🙂
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.
Now that looks like something “to die for!” I can’t believe you have such cake decorating talents. 🙂
This is a work of art!
Thank you. 🙂 It was a labour of love too.
Thank you for making me clean my screen. With my tongue. Damn, girl, you know how to tease! 😀
Hahaha. Yes, I do. 🙂
Wow, that looks decadent. Is it a family recipe secret or would you be willing to share the recipe?
It’s actually a Williams Sonoma recipe, and I tried to find a link to it, but no go. I guess I’ll just have to copy it from my recipe book and post it, when I have a spare few moments. Watch this space. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia. 🙂
Oh my! That looks absolutely divine! You will have to post the recipe sometime Sylvia 🙂
Thanks, Madhu. I’ll post the recipe soon. 🙂
It sure looks yummy indeed AD. If I have to go like that I won’t mind at all. hehehe
Great post! *hugs*
OH MY! My sweet tooth is aching. 🙂
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
So sorry about that, Francine. 🙂
Why wasn’t I there…?
You really missed out. 😦
What a beautiful looking cake! Thanks so much for a sharing a slice with us 😉
You’re so welcome, Dianne. Any time. 🙂
Thanks, Zirkie. I was quite proud of it. 🙂
It looks way too good 🙂
I know, Inga. Irresistible for sure. 🙂
Yummy… I want some… guess we’ll have to bake! 😉
I’m afraid so. It’s all gone. 😦
Yumi very tasty …Happy Easter @AD
Thanks so much. Yes, it was very tasty indeed. 🙂
That is an EXTREME cheesecake.
You have NO idea just how extreme, Ruth. 😀
Chocolate heaven … Happy Easter …!!!!
Absolutely was, Issy. Thanks. 🙂
Oh no! Are we going to seeing lots of foodie pics again? 😉
It looks divine, would you mind if I took half instead of just a slice? 😀
I’ll try not to post food pics too often. 🙂 I’m afraid my BiL polished off all the leftovers. 😦
*sends empty plate over* Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend 🙂
Hahaha. Good try, Tandy. I believe it has all been snaffled by BiL. 🙂
That looks absolutely delicious! And cute I might add ^_^
Thanks so much. 🙂
This is simply superb! The perfect post–visually appealing, exciting to the imagination, and it just made me smile again and again. Hope your brother-in-law liked the white bunny. We always have to save the white bunny for my brother Lew
Thanks so much, Naomi. What is it about that white rabbit? He was adamant that it was his, and no-one else could have it. Grown men are just little boys in long pants. 😆
My dear friend, I have nominated you for A very Influential Blogger Award! Congratulations! Please visit this link:transcendingbordersblog.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/most-influential-blogger-award/
Thanks you so much. I’m very honoured that you should think of me, but I’m not accepting any more awards. 🙂
Mmmnm… Looks delicious! Happy Easter! 🙂
Thanks so much, Nicole. 🙂
OMG! Just O-M-G!
I guess you’re trying to tell me that you would like a BIG slice, Gemma. 🙂
Ahhhh. If only! I can’t afford another cheesecake on my hips! Have some for me. You are the gymster. I am not able to do that any longer. I need to find a way to ‘move’ that doesn’t involve me moving. Lol. Then I will eat cheesecake.
I think my slice was big enough for both of us, Gemma, and as for the men. 😯
Happy Easter … and thanks for the glorious treat.
Thanks, Frank. You’re welcome. 🙂
happy easter.. can i take a slice now? never mind the calories, i don’t know how to count haha..
Thanks, Elizz. We all forgot how to count, yesterday. 🙂
Happy Easter my friend 🙂
You too, Jake. 🙂
Your desserts are all pieces of art. Almost a shame to eat them, though I doubt it would be possible to resist.
I do my best, Gunta, and they do get eaten; every last crumb. 🙂
You did ’em proud AD !
Happy Easter Weekend what’s left of it 🙂
I sure did, Poppy. 😀
happy easter ad … fabulous cheesecake … my d-i-l went over the top with cake-making too, i hope she takes the leftovers home today!
Thanks, Christine. Yes, that’s why I left the remainder at my sister’s house, but then she counteracted by giving hubby a huge slab of Christmas cake that she’d saved for him. 😯 There is no hope.
very funny … i sent most of the cake home with eldest sons family …. just kept a tiny sliver of each for us 🙂
Ohhhh Myyyyy Goddddd. I am haveing a foodie O just looking at this!
Bwahahaha……….You’re so funny, PiP. It almost compared. 😀
You are doing this to me on purpose aren’t you Sylvia?!
Oh dear! That looks gooooood!!!
Absolutely deliberate, Phil. 🙂 You won’t gain an ounce just by looking. 😀
If you promise to save a small piece, I’ll book a flight right away. Thanks for the peak into your Easter.
I’m afraid my Brother-in-law may have eaten the remaining large piece shortly after we left today. 😀
Happy Easter Sylvia 🙂 This cake looks deadly 😀
Thanks, Paula. It was. 🙂
Thank you, Stefan. 🙂
I’m off chocolate forever! See my blog (later)
This had three whole bars of Bournville in it!
Very nice indeed Sylvia. 😛
This definitely looks to die for, I would be right in it…. hmmmmmm Happy Easter
some things are just worth dying for AD 😉
Chocolate is always one of them!!
It does look yummy – glad you had a good time with the family today.
I could certainly think of worse ways to go out,mmmmmmmmmmm 😀
The toping looks so good.
Happy Easter, oh my word that looks heavenly!
That is in fact so to die for it is worth dying for!
Unless this is a mystery, of course, in which case the piano-player did it! 🙂
That looks absolutely lovely! I’m proud to say not a piece of chocolate has passed my lips today 🙂
Thanks, SC. I’m proud of you. 😀
You chomped them in pairs? 🙂
Please one piece for me !!! 😆
Never offer the Bulldog such an invitation… have you seen how big my slices are??
Yes, it was. 🙂
It looks DELISH!!! Glad you had a good day ad 🙂
Thanks so much, Hopestar. Easter hugs to you. 🙂
What a nice way to go 😀
