Creamy lemon berry cheesecake

This recipe comes from the box of Philadelphia cream cheese 

This is how mine turned out
I changed the base to Oreo and used only 3/4 punnet of blueberries in the cake 
I also did a raspberry sauce to decorate the top

The cake
2 x 250gm cream cheese softened about 30 mins 
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 lemon - grate the zest n get the juice
1 cup of heavy cream
3 teaspoons of gelatin dissolved in 1/4 cup of boiling water 
1 punnet of blueberries 
I omitted the strawberries 

Firstly prepare the base 
The base 
15 Oreo cookies with filling crushed to fine bits 
80 gram melted unsalted butter
Mix them together and press into the base of the 20cm spring form tin
The type with a removable base
Chill in the fridge 

Place the softened cream cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl n beat together till combined
Then beat in the gelatine mixture till just combined
Add the cream and lemon juice and beat till combined
Fold in the lemon zest and blueberries 
Pour into prepared tin and chill

Prepare the raspberry sauce - recipe from this link 

Decorate the cake with rice crisp milk chocolate I bought from baking shop Phoon Huat 

You can buy the happy birthday signs from SKP the store that sells a lot of plastic wares.

We enjoyed the cake however maybe I will recommend to remove the Oreo cream next round as the base looked a bit greasy
