"Swiss Rolled" Mango Yogurt Cheesecake

Last weekend was my MIL's birthday and for the past month, I had been pondering what kind of cake should I be baking for her. Nothing too "adventurous" either in taste or looks, especially if it's meant for an elder member of the family. But I wanted to bake something real special too, not something I've done before. :P So with much consideration and "engineering" involved, I decided to go with this Swiss Rolled Mango Yoghurt Cheesecake. Why Swiss rolled? Check it out yourself:
 
If you remember a while back when I did the Pikachu Mango Swiss Roll Cake, you'll know where I got this idea from. Nice? I sure hope it had made the birthday lady a littler happier seeing this cake. If there is a phrase to describe what I went through to make this cake, it's "没有功劳,也有苦劳" (rough translation: even if I didn't get any credit for it, I sure did gave my full effort in making it). You folks must be wondering what effort? What's the big deal? Well, the thing was I made a major mistake in the process of baking the Swiss roll cake around it. When I piped the Chinese characters "生日快乐", I didn't realize that it will turn out to be the mirror image when I placed the sheet cake up! Left with no choice, I re-baked the Swiss roll sheet again, deco and all....*sigh!!!* Well at least there's a lesson learnt here! I'm pretty sure I won't be making this mistake again....I hope!




I got idea of making fruit yogurt cheesecake from Wendy of Table for 2 or more, where she made a Passion fruit Yoghurt Cheesecake. It looked really light and refreshing, something nice to have after dinner. So it was definitely a good choice for me. :)) I followed her recipe to the dot except that I replaced the passion fruit with fresh mango puree and the plain yogurt with mango yoghurt. As for the Swiss roll, you can use my Pikachu mango Swiss Roll cake recipe. :))
Besides the minor "set back", I really enjoyed making this cake. :) It still turned out as I expected it to be. (BIG relief!). :P It was light and freshing, with a slight tang from the yogurt which I find it easy to go down even after a heavy dinner. :))

As you can see from the sliced up cake, the yogurt layer and the cheesecake layer are not in proportion. :P I should have doubled up the cheesecake recipe and reduced the the yogurt filling. O well, next time! BTW, sorry for my poor photography this time, sure didn't do justice to the cake, heehee *thick skinned!*

Hope you all like this cake I made and a little inspired to bake a nice birthday cake yourself for you loved ones. :) Either way, have a good good weekend! Cheers all!

I made the same mistake as you! I baked a cake with words not realizing that it would be the mirror image and I'd to redo the whole thing. But it was a good thing, because I think the second time was better :) Btw, your creativity is beyond words!
