Did someone say bite-sized cheesecakes?
(SPOT.ph) Cheesecakes in flavors like Oreo and Reese’s. The Baking Hub’s Camille Tinagan used her love for sweet confections as a springboard to create something sweeter. Come to think of it, her homemade creations are a blend of everything she loves-sweets, chocolate, and cheesecake.
While others are busy filling little cups with batter, Camille goes for a different tact. She tells us: "If cupcakes these days have wide varieties of flavors, why not try it with cheesecake instead?" The results are miniature cheesecakes made incredibly sinful with her choice of flavor that you’re meant to share a box with a few friends just to finish it.
From her impressive variety is the White Kitty (P50). White chocolate and Kit-Kat bars combine to make the sweetest, richest marriage that would put real couples to shame. Camille’s love for Crunch bars prompted her to make the Cheesecake Crunch (P50). If the luscious texture of cheesecake is bit too much for you to handle, Camille stirs in rice krispies into a mix of milk chocolate to simulate her favorite chocolate bar’s famous crunch.
Other beloved childhood treats have also been adapted into cheesecakes, like Sneaky Snickers (P45), a medley of dark chocolate, caramel, and nuts, and Midnight Reese (P50), an affable approach to the tried-and-tested pairing of chocolate and peanut-butter. The only thing she didn’t bother adjusting was the Oreo (P45), because according to her, it already worked wonderfully with her preferred cake. Whichever flavor you decide to try, a bite will tell you that this rich, gooey decadence will satisfy the sweetest of sweet tooths.
Two things are common: chocolate and cheesecake. It’s how she started. She was in college when she embarked on a new baking hobby as an experiment. But like all passionate pastimes, it blossomed into a home-based business-which she hopes will grow to be something more. Until that time comes, it’s exciting to see what other combinations can she add to her winning formula.
Sneaky Snickers and Oreo are priced at P45 each; Midnight Reese, White Kitty, Cheesecake Crunch, and Classy Velvet at priced at P50 each.
