Finally ! Cookies ordering is now available online !! Glad to share that cookies business is still on-going so far and the results are rewarding. So you can be sure of what I am busy with nowadays…. Coming up with new cookies flavours and catering for orders. And of course, working on the online ordering website for Chunky Cooky. Having had this idea for quite sometime already and working towards my 2013 resolutions, this is surely part of the desired plans.
Of course, Chunky Cooky Online is still in the implementation stage. So the website is basically quite bare. But if time permits, I will slowly improvise it to include more options for cookies ordering yeah. And most importantly, hopefully more customers will love my cookies and come back for more. So friends and pals, spread the word please !!! ^-^
And of course weekends have been packed for me as usual. I realised I had so little time for myself ! I haven’t been shopping for weeks !! But whenever I had that little bit of spare time, I love to cook up a storm… But cooking for this weekend has been the usual stuffs since it’s a “clearing fridge” week so nothing fanciful to blog about… but I baked something delightful instead – A Kit-Kat Oreo Cheesecake !!!
Why Kit Kat arh ? The inspiration came from a birthday cake that I have eaten donkey years back, and that other than the dark chocolate mousse, kit kat wafers can be found among the layers and instead of the plain old Oreo cheesecake that we often seen around, it set me thinking to incorporate some surprise to it by adding some kit kat too ? Furthermore since the house is never short of chocolates, it seems a pretty good idea to do a stock clearance of the fridge as well.
Next, why a cheesecake then ? Well, it’s that monthly fridge’s stock take event… and clearing away alot of expired stuffs already made my heart twitch too much. Determined not to let the cheese go to waste in time to come, I decide I should make it useful by converting it into a cheesecake, isn’t it ? Those who has taken a bite of the cheeesecake…..rest assured lar.. you are safe so far, aren’t you ? The cream cheese has had 3 more months of shelf life to go. Phew, heaved a sign of relief arh ? Hahaha !
The Kit Kat was “buried” together with the ground Oreo to form the crust of the cheesecake. And because some kind of commercial cheese were used, the texture was short of a thick and velvety kind. What was presented was more of a lighter version of the New York Cheesecake and lies somewhere in between the Japanese and American styles. Surprisingly, the cake was a hit with the ladies and old folks who felt the otherwise Philadelphia cream cheese kinda will be too enriched for them.
I am not a fan of cheesecakes or should I say, I am not a fan of any cakes. Though I am an avid baker, but I only enjoy the process and not the end products. So can you imagine I cut out like 20 pieces of this cheesecake, had 13 pieces distributed to colleagues and friends, own consumption of 4 pieces and still had balance 3 pieces which eventually still go to waste.
Wanna start a cheesecake mania like this ? Look out for the recipe which will be posted soon !!
And….3 more days to the weekend. Kambatte, everyone !!
