I see a lot of recipes day-to-day, especially ones for dessert. I seek them out and have more desserts bookmarked on my computer than anything else. I couldn't care less about making savory dinners, yet I am passionate about sweets. Making a dessert is like making a work of art every time for me, and after making this I feel like I've been finger painting my whole life and finally discovered a paintbrush, and can now properly do this form of art.

When I started making the cheesecake, I realized I was short an entire 8 oz. of cream cheese. What, seriously? It worked out, though, since everything was in 3rd...I cut out a 1/3rd of all the other ingredients. It all ended up working out. I was so happy that I had overcome 2 real issues by now! On top of that, the cake baked quite beautifully. The crust burned a little bit, so I will have to figure that out, but my Dad didn't seem to mind.

I made it. It was delicious. It was not the most successful cake ever, but I DID IT! I couldn't even believe it. I basically made 2 cakes, both of which had some issues, but I got through all of them with my own confidence and intuition. I made something that absolutely overwhelmed me, and it was wonderful. It was successful, and I'm looking forward to making a creation of my very own.
