For my boyfriend's birthday I asked him what kind of cake he wanted. And he said yellow. :\ SO I pressed him a bit more and he said he liked cheesecake. I thought 'hmmm... I could make a no bake jello cheesecake' but then I thought 'nay, I'm an accomplished artisan and I can do better. It must be from scratch!' Then I thought, 'ugh but I'm lazy...' so I waited until the last minute and had to run around like a crazy person to finish it. But that's how I do most things.

Anyway, here is the delicious delicious recipe:

 http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/White-Chocolate-Raspberry-Cheesecake

So, I thought I would document the whole thing to post on my flickr and on craftser, but then my aforementioned laziness kicked in. So I only got a few snaps in. The finished product:



SO here's the very beginning of my baking escapade. Raspberries (organic, ain't I fancy?) 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and water pre-boil:



Here they go a'boiling. Look how steamy they're getting. It smelled absolutely delicious:



Then to strain the finished boiled raspberry sauce to remove those pesky seeds. It took FOREVER. I mean painfully forever. I had to stir and stir and push and push it through the strainer. This was about the time I decided that photographing the whole process was a bit much. It was worth it in the end, but geez.



And then a whole bunch of mixing, baking, and refrigerating ensued. After which I used extra raspberries and white chocolate to decorate. It was impossible to find white chocolate at my grocery store so I ended up sacrificing an unwitting Easter bunny. I used a cheese grater on that little white chocolate fellow and made little flakes to adorn the top of the cheesecake, as you can see in the picture here:



Sorry bunny.

The recipe called for chocolate cookie crumbs for the bottom crust, but I used chocolate graham crackers which were mighty tasty.

And there you have it. A tasty treat full of love and sweat... well not literally full of sweat, but you know what I mean.

Wow, this looks delicious! I'm in the middle of Pesach, when we can't eat any chametz (= bread, cake, cookies, etc), so these pictures are tormenting me...

haha That first paragraph reminds me a lot of myself when producing some celebratory, baked good is my mission. Except I love cheesecake too much to consider making it from a box. If I don't feel like making it from scratch, I make something else.

I'm glad you stuck with your plan because it looks so delicious!!! Then again, White Chocolate + Raspberry + Cheesecake just can't go wrong, haha. They're all too amazing.

Ooh, gorgeous!  Lucky boyfriend!  (I made my boyfriend a carrot cake for his birthday once and spent literally an hour grating carrots.  He loved it.  He'd better.)

Now I want cheesecake.  Sigh....

Super delish!  Just an FYI  sometimes white chocolate is sold as Almond Bark.  May make it easier to find when Easter (or rabbit season!) is over! hahaa!  Beautiful cake and I am seriously going to look for those chocolate graham crackers, never seen 'em before.

I think I saw some, but I was like "EW! nuts!" But if it wasn't easter it would probably be my only alternative.

Yeah, it takes forever to make it from scratch. Especially for me who is inexperienced at baking. I find myself reading and rereading the recipe to make sure I'm doing it right.

I made sure to emphasize the time it took to do to the boyfriend. He hates this picture but...
