White Chocolate Cheesecake Day

White Chocolate Buttercream, Cordon Rose Raspberry Cheesecake

Today is National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day, although it might not be an official holiday, it’s still real to many of us where we will be making the most of the glorious white chocolate cheesecake. After doing some research on national days of the year, there is something for everyday and luckily the day i decided to take a gander was one of the best ones listed.

Cheesecake has been around for a lot longer than we would assume, with records dating back to 776 BC at the first Ancient Greek Olympic Game. Cheesecake was considered to be a good source of energy, and therefore served to the athletes before the games. The form of cheesecake back then was however a little different to the soul destroying recipes we may find today, simply made with flour, honey and cheese. Although we do find some excrutiatingly complicated recipes for the best cheesecake, the improvement along the cheesecake timeline has been nothing but splendour and it is probably safe to say many will be joining in the celebration of the white chocolate cheesecake.

Although technically an American holiday, there is nothing stopping us all from joining in on the fun and eat as much cheesecake as humanly possible. If you have the time to make a cheesecake yourself then we have some delicious recipes for you to try out
