Still the same great, simple flavours that you remember, The Cheesecake Shop remains an easy crowd pleaser with the cake I ordered being cleaned up in no time. I grew up with so many fond memories of The Cheesecake Shop back in New Zealand (it’s exactly the same). We whipped out a Black Forest Gateaux on every single birthday, engagement party, reunion and other general family assembly. I hadn’t had a taste in a good while so I hopped along to pick up one for my birthday last week (since we only do once-a-month birthday cakes that cover off everyone, ick). And was glad I did!
With a bit of age, comes hindsight and arguably these aren’t the most authentic to the name (needs booze) nor innovative (largely decorated cream and sponge). They are however, very good. Tasty and fresh sponge, balanced levels of cream and wonderfully presented. And also worth nothing how great value these cakes and cheesecakes are. Only about thirty bucks for the full-sized of this cake and even less when you factor in the 25% Entertainment Book voucher I had (of course). Great to see the products from The Cheesecake Shop still retaining their nostalgic value and I’m all for supporting their livelihoods for the next generation. I’m eyeing up the crazy rainbow one, or perhaps one of the actual cheesecakes.
Don’t forget to book in advance for the super fancy ones.
