  9. I love pineapple cheesecake - it's how the pineapple cuts through the cream cheese and makes it taste lighter.

  18. Hi Kit,

    I don't think you have submit your link for your cheesecake. I will fix up the problem for you now... no worries.

    Btw saw your comment at my Xiang si post... We are cotton soft cheesecake for our bake-along in June. Wanna join the challenge? I have baked Japanese Cheesecake prior my blogging days but still a little scare baking this for this bake-along theme. With all your baking experiences, I think you will be ok.

    Cheers!
