Back in August last year I made a cheesecake with my boys, not just any old cheesecake though – a baked vanilla cheesecake using a Jamie Oliver recipe that I’ve made many times before. It’s my favourite type and has never failed me. Even though I typically choose a chocolate dessert I much prefer a vanilla cheesecake.
I tried to let the boys get on with as much of the recipe as possible without me while I took photos of them. I can’t believe how much younger Casper looks in the photo above, even though it’s only about 6 months ago.
We all had a great afternoon and decided to decorate it with jelly babies. I thought it would be fun to make a stop motion video of the jelly babies invading the cheesecake. Casper loved helping to move them around and got very involved but Rowan was just a little bit too young at the time. So here is the video….
I think it took about an hour to get 13 seconds of video.
You can find the recipe here. Other than omitting the fruit compote the only change I made was to use hobnobs instead of digestives for the base. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad Jamie Oliver recipe and this one is amazing.
I’ll just leave you with a few more photos of the boys making the cheesecake. It reminds me that I need to do some more baking with them soon.
That is so fun! I’m going to have to make one with my kids!
Oh these photos are so cute and the video is super cool! 😀 Love Cheesecake and love Jamie, have you tried his bloomin’ brilliant brownies (I think that’s the name)? Its one of my favorite chocolate recipes 😀
That video is fab. More please. Lovin’ your photography too 🙂
