Ingredients

  • Red USA pear ½
  • Plum cake slices 3 to 4
  • Cream cheese 1 cup
  • Butter, melted 1 tbsp
  • Sweet condensed milk ½ cup
  • Vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • Whipped cream 1½-2 cups
  • Gelatin ½ tbsp
  • Edible silver balls as required
  • Edible red stars as required

Methods

  • Line a small spring bottom cheesecake tin with aluminium foil.

  • Take cream cheese in an other bowl, add condensed milk and whisk. Add vanilla essence and whisk well. Add ⅓ of the whipped cream and fold in gently. Add remaining whipped cream and fold in well gently.
  • Take gelatin in a small bowl. Add some cream mixture and mix well. Add the gelatin-cream mixture to the remaining cream mixture and mix well.
