Yesterday Amanda and I got ambitious and decided to crank out 3 types of cheesecake! We started at 4 pm and I didn't leave until midnight! Three types of cheesecake was enough to drive us into insanity. I had never attempted to bake these before, they seemed tricky annnnd I figured they required a much higher baking skill than I currently possess. I don't know why I thought this, they were actually not as hard as I thought, although the different pans, types of crust, ingredients to add to different flavors, proved to be a little hectic.

We did a pumpkin cheesecake, Bailey's Irish Cream cheesecake, and a 2 layer chocolate one.

Also, we found the most brilliant little pan for individual cheesecakes at Cobblestone Cottage in Ladner, it made 12 individual personal sized cheesecakes and had little pop-out bottoms to get them out! So cute, but such a BITCH to clean!!

The Bailey's Irish Cream cheesecake didn't turn out as we hoped, it is still good, but there is only a hint of flavor, which is funny considering I poured half a bottle of Bailey's and a shot of Whiskey in for good measure.

Still, it was really awesome to learn how to make cheesecake and I'm sure I'll be putting my darling Kitchenaid to the test in the future, now that I feel capable!
My family will be taste testing them all tonight for dessert, as it was my Mom's birthday yesterday and tonight we are doing dinner!!

I'm going to try and get to the Baker's Martket next weekend for a visit and a few purchases if I can, I miss my Sunday cake school crew so I am hoping a few of them will be there!
