Coffee Cream Cheesecake

This recipe is from Fantastic Cheesecake by Alex Goh. According to the recipe, this is supposed to be a 9” cake, using a 9” width by 1cm thickness vanilla sponge cake as a base. I used an 8” width by 1cm thickeness sponge cake (trimmed some away from the edge) as a base and made this into an 8” cake, no problem to fit in at all. I forgot to get an ornament for the cake, so hubby made this bunch of firecrackers on new year eve for me. Without counting, guess how many little firecrackers made up the bunch here? Hehe... it's a lucky number.
