Holiday Cheesecake Torte

As if cheesecake isn't rich enough, sandwich it between two chocolate cake layers spread with apricot jam, and cover the entire dessert with a delicious buttercream frosting...with a hint of raspberry liqueur.  Sprinkle a few crushed pistachios on top; arrange a few marzipan kumquats and cranberries dipped in egg white and dusted with sugar, and I'll bet the cholesterol police will be at your door.  But, I guarantee they'll have a piece before carting you away to the land of sensible eating.

Merry Christmas! 


  1. That's a work of art. I'm not sure I could bring myself to cut into it. (I guess since it's your cake you'd be pretty irritated if I did cut into it).

    You photographed it beautifully as well.

    Merry Christmas,
