Vanilla Cheesecake

It becomes so dark in the afternoon and makes me feel like time for the shops to close and time to go home…I end up having plenty of time in the evening reading cookbooks, baking, enjoying my tea and updating my blog :-O

I was looking at some cookbooks, I wanted to make (have) some cheesecake 🙂 as i have all ingredients  ready at home.

I was making some rose and jasmine buds tea, I thought I could add some dried flower tea buds for presentation, they look so pretty
