1 Ready-to-eat Japanese cheesecake
5 tbsp Strawberry jam
2 tbsp Lemon water
8 pcs Orange or lemon candy
Chopped cashew nuts, almond nuts and walnuts
Sliced raspberries and/or strawberries
- Place candy in a microwave-safe container and microwave at medium heat for around 1 minute. Stir and put it back in the microwave until the candy has melted completely.
- Prepare baking paper on a tray, then use a spoon to drizzle the melted candy over the baking paper creating any shape you like. Wait until the candy has hardened before carefully peeling the centrepiece from the baking sheet.
- In another microwave-safe bowl, place strawberry jam in it and microwave for 2 minutes (high heat) until it melts. Dilute the strawberry jam with lemon water. Let it cool down for 5 minutes before spreading it onto the cheesecake.
- Place the candy centrepiece in the middle of the cake, followed by your favourite berries and nuts before serving.
Tip: For spiral candy centrepieces, twirl melted candy around a steel knife-sharpening blade to create a tight spiral effect and slide it off from the blade. Make sure the candy is slightly cooler to hold its shape.
