    That photograph is gorgeous. How did you make the cheesecake with rings?  -  22 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    While I'm not a fan of "not cheesecake" this worked for my guests. As for the design...split your batter before adding your flavor so you end up with vanilla and ... Pour one cup into the pan, follow it with opposite color and repeat till you are out of batter. I crumbed the sides-it really polishes it off.  -  15 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    As a cheese fiend and dairy lover, I don't normally make vegan desserts unless it's a special request. This one is so beautiful, it's hard for anyone to resist. Nice job. (I did use butter instead of margarine in the crust, and added cocoa powder, a pinch of salt and about a tablespoon of confectioners'sugar when grinding the almonds.) I used almond milk instead of soy and almond oil instead of sunflower seed. Served it with warm chocolate ganache.  -  18 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
