Its Monday again! Time to clear my fridge to use up left over ingredients. Let's see... what should I bake? Hmm, I have some chocolate butter cream, fresh cream & vanilla cinnamon syrup.

The Oreo crumbs in the middle of the cake look a bit too plain for the cake, so I added a 'Happy Birthday' cake topper (top photo) when taking photos. It does looks better =)

Can't resist this sinful cheesecake.... I am already 'sampling' it while taking these photos!
