I have received so many amazing entries that I am going to have to think long and hard about this! I will be drafting in my husband to help as it's just too close to call! So many great entries in fact that right now I can not even give you a date I will be announcing the winners, it is just that close!
The people of DA have chosen and with a winning score of 60 votes I can now reveal the theme of this contest is to make the recipe for *drum roll*
Cool Mint Oreo Cheesecake!
Funny enough there is no baking involved in this baking contest!!!!
Rules and requirements:
You must use the basic recipe provided however Feel free to replace certain ingredients to suite your needs if, for example you have allergies, intolerance's etc.
Some countries such as my own do not sell mint Oreo's! Some do not even sell Oreo's at all so, feel free to use another flavour or similar chocolate sandwich cookie brand.
Please state in your entry description it is for this contest and link this journal (the more entries to more fun it is!)
I know some of you do not/are not allowed to bake so you may get help making your entry with a parent, partner, friend etc just please state in your entry who helped you.
Finally, one entry per person.
We first eat with our eyes so careful and elegant presentation of the over all dish (not to be confused with food photography) is highly encouraged as this is what I will be looking out for most when judging. TIPS: Clean the inside of your glass between layering to give your cheesecake a nice clean line. Present your cheesecake in a pretty glass or bowl. Finish your cheesecake off with some pretty decorations (careful consideration into flavour combinations also comes into play here whether making a mint or another flavoured cheesecake, pairing with a complimentary topping as well as pretty will provide a great and unique extra to your dessert)
There will be extra points for the best food photography. For you photography beginners, check out my food photography basics guide which involves no special or fancy equipment. For the rest of you photographers out there, carry on!
There will also be extra points for the most creative entry so for those of you more into the artistic side why not try and present your entry in a new and usual way, think outside the box or outside the glass so to speak! Check out my gallery for inspiration.
