Today is my dear Sister S’s birthday!  
Happy Birthday to you sis and may brighter days will shine upon you again!  Make a wish, and hope the coming days and years be a smoother life journey to you.

I have wanted to bake this Oreo Cheesecake for so long but I waited to do this for a special occasion and for a special person.   This is why I waited for this day to bake it.

I don’t know why recently most of the cakes and cookies that I have baked don’t turn up well and perfect for me.   I just do not know what is the failure I have made as I’ve followed the steps as it was. 

The base of this cake; the Chocolate Sponge, doesn’t look well perfectly done.  Sigh….. but I still go ahead to use it.  Just do not want to bake another one to go wasted.    

Recipe adapted from Masam Manis
