TBB: The Araxi Lemon Cream Tart (p235)

I baked this tart together with the Marble Cheesecake. I made the tart crust earlier and kept in the freezer for a while..and forgotten about it until I was clearing my freezer.

So I took it out from freezer and baked it till golden brown as instructed.

Then I made the lemon cream.... .I didn't have time to wait for the 30min rest time, so I strained the  custard instead..I strained it twice hoping it will be ok... had some bubbles and I tried to remove with spoon.. 

After baked... I poured the custard too full. The baking sheet below warped in the oven..and the custard leaked over the sides.

My share of the cheesecake and the lemon tart

This is the BEST lemon tart I have ever tasted!  I always thought lemon tart is too sour for me.. but this cream tart, I love!  Now I feel like making it again.. soo good! I had great feedback on this! Everyone who tried it loves it...!

TBB: Marble White & Dark Chocolate Cheesecake (p164)

I had no intention of baking till end October, but as I was clearing my freezer space to make space for my upcoming big project, I realised I had some biscuit crust and pastry tart crust all rolled out nicely in the pan waiting to be baked... But I tried to do too much... even now that I am typing this...I'm also at the same time multi-tasking other things.. because I want to get things done asap and there seems to be not enough time... Why time flies so quickly... or is it because I am getting older or what?

Anyway... because when I tried to do too much things at limited time, I made many mistakes too also because I wasn't feeling very well either.. my stomach was acting up.. I think maybe gastric from all the stress!  

As you can see, I baked the Araxi Lemon Cream tart too... 

I used the leftover cookie crust (instead of baking the sponge cake).

Mix the melted chocolate into half the cheese batter... 

I ran out of white chocolate..left with 60g and I made up the rest of the weight with Dulce de Leche... (I boiled the can for 3 hours in water....didn't explode..if you are wondering.. if it did, I won't be here typing!)

All ready to be baked...

I tried to save time and transferred the cheesecake to the toaster oven to cool down..but forgot to turn off the toaster oven..and in the end, the top of the cheesecake was burnt!  

Under the burnt skin..not too bad isn't it?  

The disaster part after this...I didn't record any I was busy 'firefighting'... I thought I could cover the top of the cake with sour cream. So I poured the sour cream over and as it was baking..the sour cream turned into liquid and leaked..and I realised I poured heavy cream instead!?!?!?  I tried to tilt the cheesecake and pour out the heavy cream and the cheesecake almost fell out. I had to use a spoon and scoop every drop out!  I gave up for the night (midnight...!) and place in the fridge to set.

The next morning, wide awake, I finally had a great idea! Just cover the top with ganache. Why didn't I think of that that night before!!

Very very good cheesecake. Super delicious and very rich! Just the way I like it. Actually, it is like saying the obvious! All Rose's cheesecake recipes are very fail.  All creamy, smooth and deliciously melt in mouth and this is no exception.
