    I made this for my friend's birthday.
    Instead of one big cake, I made individual muffin size cheesecakes and put a butter cream flower on top.
    It looked elegant and tasted even better!!!
    It is a decadent, delicious dessert!!
    It takes a lot of time to make, but it's worth the effort.
