I was the 'someone' that Meryl was nice enough to help out! :) This cheesecake was perfect for my co-worker, who suffers from numerous food allergies. She was absolutely delighted to be able to celebrate her birthday with a cake - something she hasn't been able to do for years! It was so beautiful that our boss took a picture. I think I almost burnt the caramel sauce, so be careful there. The cheesecake itself is exactly what I imagine when I think of a classic cheesecake. Would also be good with fruit or chocolate topping instead of caramel. Thanks, Meryl! You made me a star! :)
Major disappointment. It's expensive to buy all these ingredients, spend all this time making it and end up with a gooey flat cheesecake. I didn't have one guest eat but a bite and turn it back.
