Cheesecake. Some love them. Some don’t. I used to be one of those who are not crazy — sorry, let me paraphrase, “not interested” sounds more accurate — about cheesecake.
Yes, I’ve eaten them but give me fruit cake, chocolate cake or kueh lapis (a thousand layer cake) anytime.
It was one of those days when I had finished all my work and I had time to look at the many marketing email that constantly pops up in my inbox. Qoo10 sends many each day and I don’t bother to read most. But, I happened to click one and as I was scrolling down, spotted a deal on a cheesecake that seemed too good to miss, plus my daughters love cheesecakes. The price was $23.90 instead of the regular price of $35.90. I picked the Milo Dinosaur cheesecake.
When my daughters got back, I told them about the deal and they asked which shop I had ordered from. Honestly, I had no clue. I just bought what I thought was a good deal. They figured that it could be from Cake & the Fiddle. and bingo, it was!
The cake arrived as scheduled and was placed in the freezer as I wanted the family to cut and eat together.
It was love at first bite. The cheese was rich without being smelly or overpowering. When frozen, it tastes just like a creamy ice cream cake (another of my favourites).
Cake & The Fiddle provided a pack of Milo powder to sprinkle on the cake for that dinosaur feel. Brilliant move, really! If the cake had come pre-sprinkled, the powder will be scattered everywhere.
We have since ordered online two more times. And the feeling remains. The cheesecakes are really good!
If you want to score a good deal, look out for offers on Qoo10 because the bakery does list offers regularly. Alternatively, pop over to the official site, which also has offers from time to time.
