But today I created perfection! Not really but it looked really pretty:
Actually it was so nice that I became slightly obsessed with it for a few minutes. Taking some more pictures of it's beauty.
Then I realized I forgot the icing sugar I bought earlier, so I added that:
It didn't really look anymore impressive than I already was. Still I took more pictures.
Then my father started looking at me strangely for taking so many photos of this cheesecake. Sure I realize it's not the most amazing cheesecake ever made, but for those who've had my cheesecake before, they'll know that I don't usually decorate my baked goods. I always find that a waste of time since well... it was going to get pretty ugly when it's all in your stomach anyways.
But it was mother's day today, and I had berries. So I figured why not give topping the cake a try. Best. Idea. Ever.
Funny though that the actual cheesecake tasted the same (actually not really; usually my cheesecakes are plain, I added some berries to the base of this one), only having the toppings there made it look much better. And it did add a nice addition to hint of berry in the actual cake. Funny how food can look so much more appetizing with just a few final touches. I shall keep this in mind when I am entertaining guests in the future and/or making more cheesecake.
Next task: Oreo cheesecake. A recent trip to a little cake/coffee house has somewhat inspired me. Figure it won't be as good as the one I ate, but good nonetheless.
