How to Make 27+ Cheesecakes and Look Awesome While Doing It

...or at least, feel like you look awesome while doing it?

Thank you so much for voting me into Project Food Blog Round 7 -- I'm so grateful for your support! Challenge #7 was to create a video tutorial. I think you guys know by now that I'm a little obsessed with souped-up cheesecakes, so without further ado (okay, with a little more further ado), I'm about to show you how to create flippin' awesome cheesecakes.

LIGHTS

What went into creating this video? Lots and lots of planning -- dozens of pages worth! Lots and lots of time -- 35+ hours worth! And lots and lots of fun -- probably more than I should've had. Ahem. You'll see.

CAMERA

Cheesecakes are incredibly customizable. In the video below, I'll show you 3 different crusts, 3 different fillings, and 3 different toppings. By mixing and matching these components, you can feasibly create over 27 different cheesecakes! So, um, if you ever need 27 different cheesecakes . . . I got ya covered.

ACTION

Enough of the suspense! What do you get when you combine stop-motion animation, a music video, some ridiculousness, and a whole lotta cheesecake? Watch and see.

You can print the recipes for these cheesecakes here: Coffee Cookie Dough Fudge Cheesecake, Caramel Fudge Brownie Cheesecake, Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Cheesecake.

THE BLOOPER REEL

...wherein I prove that I'm basically tone deaf, drop my brownie layer in the floor, yell a lot at my piece-of-crap hand mixer, and eat bacon.

STRIKE THE SET

After the video camera was tucked away, the tripods were folded up, and my smudgy lipstick had faded, there was still one itty bitty order of business to attend to. What the heck does one do with three cheesecakes?! Turns out there was something awesome to do with them!

My friend Carol has a heart the size of Jupiter. She's worked with children with special needs for several years now, and recently, while browsing Reece's Rainbow, a website that connects orphans with special needs to adoptive homes, she laid eyes on Quinton. Quinton is a tiny, precious baby boy in Eastern Europe with Downs Syndrome. At first, Carol half-jokingly asked her husband if they could adopt him. As time went on, though, it became clear that neither she nor her husband could stop thinking about Quinton.

They posted his picture on her refrigerator and decided they were going for it. They're currently beginning the process to bring him home! This miracle is not without a cost -- it will take thousands of dollars. I decided my huge, decadent cheesecakes were perfect for a little fundraising. I gave two of them away in return for donations to Quinton's fund. I can't tell you what an honor it is to be a tiny part of Carol's journey -- and how humbling it is to see other friends donating their time, goods, services, energy, and love to them! Little Quinton is already changing our lives. Would you like to help as well? You can see Quinton and donate to his adoption fund here.

ROLL THE CREDITS

A big thank you to: ALL Willow Bird Baking readers who have been so supportive, Sarah for the use of her camera, Kim for loaning me a second tripod, Byrd for being willing to hang out with me while I edited video for about a decade, Royalty-Free Music, Carol for already being an amazing mommy even though her little one is still across the world, my 7th grade students for inspiring my stop-motion animation, and everyone who helped me eat cheesecake!

P.S. - Did you have a chance to see my Teaser Video?
P.S. 2 - Dear Coworkers, if you make fun of me about this, no more cheesecake for you!

    I haven’t watch the official vid yet, but I’m already laughing out loud at the mixer standing beside the bowl whirring away while you took a break. Sometimes small appliances develop minds of their own!

    Julie! You are so adorable and friendly but not in an overly cheesy annoying way (you know what I’m talking about). I know you put a lot of work into that 6 1/2 min. video but it was so good! You should really consider doing these much more often (like once a month, including blooper reels). Besides having fun watching you I learned something! You really have a great camera presence! This wasn’t at all painful to watch like some other vid’s on food buzz…… omg would rather watch paint dry while having a root canal performed by my hairdresser! Ouch! The camera loves you “dahling”!!!

      P.S. I have a small blender that is possessed and has to have an exorcism performed on it every 4th or 5th use! It’ll speed up, then slow down and make a growling noise and then it will not let you turn it off all on it’s own. The mixer running on it’s own was hilarious!

    I just found your web site. LOVE IT! Question about the ganache layer: does that help keep the crust crispy?

    I just made this cheesecake with the oreo cookie crust and Ganache chocolate layer. After baking and cooling over night. I then topped it with raspberry glaze and raspberries. I took it to my ladies group last night. Perfect Valentines desert, and was it ever AMAZING! Don’t be afraid to add this layer. I received so many compliments on this beauty. I did need to increase my baking time 15 mintes, because the crust layers were frozen when I added the filling layer and placed in water bath to bake.
    Julie, you are now my ” go to girl” when I want something elegant.
    THANK YOU. thank you, thank YOU! So beautiful and tasty desert lady.
