Baking Challenge

Hidden Design Cake

Give your cake a name based on the ingredients and decoration – and tell us about the origin of your recipe.

Cheese Curd and Door County Cherry Cheesecake

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

I was a bit concerned about the cherry/lemon combination, so when I took that first bite I was very pleased. 🙂

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

Nothing says Wisconsin like cheese curds, so that is the cheese in my cheesecake. For good measure, I added a bit of Door County cherry juice, Wisconsin apples (for the surprise inside the cake) and honey from Schmitt and Son’s Apiary in the Fox River Valley.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
