Chocolate-coated Cheesecake Alphabets for the Aspiring Bakers#7 =)

Cheesecake Recipe from here, instead of digestive biscuits as base crust, i used oreo cookies instead.
Chocolate Granche to cover the letterings -- 200gm cooking chocolate melted with 1 can of heavy cream.

creases came fr the underlining patchment paper, urgh.

also need 'blueprint' okie? =p

cheesecake words were perspiring (but not melting), so was i.

i couldn't possibly serve tis like dat, even tho' the birthday boy loved the original new york cheesecake plain as it is. This cake was meant as a surprise/highlight for the surprise birthday party which his wifey secretly arranged. i love being part of a secret mission!!! =)

Cocoa powder sprinkled over.. and placed the 3D chocolate-coated cheesecake letterings over. i underestimated the width of the cake (amateur baker who failed maths) so i had to squeeze them together (couldn't place in straight horizontal line) & had the sides 'fallin-out' a lil... but i thot it made it look more fun in the end =) 

the thick of it, the whole cake was damn heavy -- 2kg?

took me an hour to alternate the daisies & sunnies in my set color sequence.. i so wish i could work faster!! Needs practice!!

my cheapskate birthday banner, makeshift cutting knife (jus an ordinary plastic knife lah) and $2 candles fr Daiso (we all love!)

The best pic of the cake (imho). Nothin beats a picture of the cake wif the birthday boy himself + wifey. We had a fabulous time at the Scarlet hotel!!
Happie 40th Birthday, David!
