My fiance's favorite cake is a cheesecake so this recipe jumped out at me and I got super excited to make it! The cheesecake takes the place of the cream but it does taste amazing! I will have to share with you all soon my Boston Cream Pie recipe, my favorite!
Anyways I made this for him yesterday because well it was his birthday! He did enjoy the cake and jumped through the roof when he found out I put cheesecake in there. I wish I had photos to show you but he is camera shy so no pictures while blowing out the candles so you will just get photos of the cake instead, I hope you are ok with that. Why wouldn't you be?
