MacArthur Park* - Blogtoberfest: jour de vingt a quatre

Did some baking the other day for my birthday.
I decided to treat my work mates to some home cooking.

Last month's Delicious magazine had a mint choc cheesecake that I have been itching to try.

Got a double yoker in one of my organic eggs - love that!

Looking good

fresh mint to infuse the sugar syrup


And the verdict? 

I think the fact that there was none left at the end of the day, speaks for itself. It was pretty tasty if I do say so myself

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

(odd lyrics I know!)


  1. Yuuuuuummmm you know how much I love cheesecake and how much I love mint and how much I love chocolate (are you getting the subtle hint that I'm dropping)?

  2. I think I just may have to swoon! You are indeed a baking genius! To hell with the PhD in music therapy! Bah!

  3. That cake looks absolutely amazing! Awesome stuff :) And I must confess, I have a Donna Summers greatest hits album!
