Updated: ds wanted to know where the jelly stuff was on top of the cheesecake? So I added a lemon topping made up with the juice of 1 large lemon, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1 heaped tbspn each of custard powder and cornflour. Put in saucepan and heat, stirring until thickened. Apply to top of cheesecake.
Hope he likes it, will be picking him up from school shortly so I will soon know lol.
After a lot of nagging I finally got around to make the cheesecake that ds had been asking for. The recipe can be found in the booklet from the Australian Women's Weekly June 1993.
