Happy Birthday to me ~ Cappuccino Tiramisu Cheesecake for Parshad

Wished myself Happy Birthday by making 'Cappuccino Tiramisu Cheesecake' for Parshad.
With babaji, mom and parshad....
The awesome ladies in the kitchen..... Veena didi, Gunu didi, Charu aunty, Meeta didi along with Neha didi, Upma mom and babaji......

My love for coffee reflected in the choice of parshad aswell... It's winters in this part of the world, so I could use loads of hung curd and some whipped cream without the fear of it getting spoilt in the heat... :-)
Coffee Mania, which is why I have a T-shirt that says... "Too much Blood in my Caffeine System"..... and the only thing which wakes me up on a groggy morning is a mommy-made-cold coffee.... an awesome 'pick-me-up'.....

The recipe for this is available at Cappuccino Tiramisu Cheesecake ~Happy Birthday, Baking Queen ~ Deeba
I used loads of Coffee, Kahlua and some coffee flavouring [for the sugar free ones where alcohol couldn't be used]
Ahhhhh... the aroma of coffeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee in the house..........

The soft creamy mixture of hung curd, whipped cream, mascarpone.... so light n heavenly.....

Had cooked for 300 people.... so we had the whole kitchen and room full of stuff for 2 days... The entire bed and then the 2 refrigerators were full of little boxes at various stages of preparation.....

Every body picthed in while making parshad..... mom and the 2 cooks in our house.....

This is one of the cutest kids in mall road... Gunjan.... She's a real imp... She's one bundle of happy energy and bounces off the walls after eating the cakes, sweets n desserts that i get her..... ain't she adorable...

The verdict: Yummy........ lots of people asked for seconds... however, the kids found it a tad bit bitter....
