So yes, I've made many mini cheesecakes before, each of which have been super successful. This one, I didn't find as successful, but those people (Scott's coworkers) who have had it think that it's good. Okay, I guess so.
It's funny, my old roommate, Kim, and I were talking one day and I told her I was planning on making mini cheesecakes and needed to go to the grocery store and get raspberries or some sort of fruit. She told me that she was thinking about getting jelly to make her cheesecake. I got thinking, I have some raspberry jelly at my place, why don't I just try using that since I didn't feel like paying $3 for a container of raspberries. Because I used jelly, I dont think they turned out that successful. Also, the cheesecakes turned out...concave. the inside is lower than the outside. It's weird. My cheesecakes do tend to do that.
If I'm making mini cheesecakes again, I'll have to try some other thing. This whole jelly and cheesecake thing does NOT work for me. They weren't bad, but I didn't think they were that great either. These cupcakes were made with the MS: Cupcake Club, where we're baking through Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. There's quite a few of them, and they all look delicious!
