Lady Bakes

dessert jess

If there’s one thing I LOVE it’s sugar. I know that’s really bad and I shouldn’t be promoting unhealthy living, but I just love it. Desserts, baking, chocolate, cakes, biscuits, chips, lollies – I can’t help myself.

If you come to my house don’t ever expect a meal from me (that’s Mr. Lady Breaks job), but do expect some sweet sugary thing to be on offer.

I find baking to be so relaxing and therapeutic, you can be creative and get a sugar hit at the same time – what’s not to love? I am literally one of those people who looks at the dessert menu first, and who would prefer to eat dessert first.

So I thought I share what I am trialing in the kitchen this month.

I’ve always loved my Nanna’s cheesecake, and I make it religiously all Spring and Summer every year. It’s so simple and easy and nice. Anyway after seeing a layered version on Bake-a-Boo, I just had to try it out for myself.

This is how it turned out. Not as perfectly wonderful as Bake-a-Boo, but fun for a first attempt.


Bake-a-Boo individually flavoured each layer, which I chose not to do for taste reasons, but next time I want to try and get the layers more even and a little thicker.


After eating this cheesecake Mr. Lady Breaks suggested trying to do a swirly one. So I did. I just treated the cheesecake like a marble cake and swirled the colours together.


Personally I think I would have preferred the colours to be more pastel, especially after Mr. Lady Breaks told me that it looked like the imaginary food in Hook (!), but it will definitely be something I try out again.

Wishing you a very sweet weekend, and thanks for all your support in the first week of my blog!
