Cheesecake - 2nd attempt... still not good :(

I believe that practice does make perfect. Especially in baking or cooking. A very long time ago, I remember making a non-bake cheese cake and it was not too difficult. I also remembered that I didn't know all that I know now (which is also not a lot :p), the cheesecake didn't not really turn out that well.

I made my second attempt last week. This time, I almost followed the instructions to the letter except for the pan size. Had only a smaller pan than that indicated in the recipe book. Did the base of the cheesecake on Saturday and the cheesecake filling on Sunday. Towards the end, I slipped again. I did not wait for the cheese to set before I placed the peaches on top of the cake. The peaches sank faster that the Titanic. It was an absolutely horrible feeling, watching them sink :(.

Had no heart to take the picture of the peaches sinking... only took this after the sinking stopped

Anyway, what to do with such an awful cheesecake leh? Stick it back inside the fridge to harden it. Next morning, lay some more peaches on top of the cake, cut extremely thick slices of it and shoved them down the throats of some of my test bunnies.

Cut a whole chunk to feed the test bunnies at the office

Extras since I had a smaller cheesecake pan than that recommended in the recipe

Thank God the test bunnies are still all alive and kicking today.
