Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

Being an Adult can be pretty sucky sometimes, and one of the most disappointing things is that you rarely get a cake for your birthday unless you actually make it yourself. And who wants a weak ass birthday cake? Nobody! You know the B in bday stands for Bring It, and It sure has been Broughten.  

  We’re obviously a little obsessed with cheesecakes here at NDSM; almost half our research this past year has been centered on cheesecake matters. We’ve experimented with chocolate, coffee, Oreos and even liqueur, but for a summer treat, you gotta go fruity and fresh.

  Strawberries are basically the best berries (FACT) and surprisingly the only fruit to carry its seeds on the outside (FACTx2), so they were a natural choice. To make it more interesting, we decided to add homemade strawberry curd to the mix for a marble effect.

  
As we have learned during previous experiments, cheesecakes can be sneaky bastards. They look all pretty and perfect and then 20 minutes after cooling you find a crack or two in it.

 Research has taught us that the best way to handle a cracked cheesecake is to cover it. So instead of just decorating with sliced strawberries, we also added an extra layer of strawberry curd as a topping. What you gonna do now, cheesecake? Yeah I thought so!

  
In the end, it turned out to be a great idea because it upped our presentation game to a whole other level, and everyone was super impressed. Remember: appearance is everything (FACTx3).
