From all the Halloween posts I have done, I think you have seen a pattern here…. I am riding a hobbyhorse of pumpkin every October!!! This Pumpkin Cheesecake is not the last one for this year, I could have more to come, at least another one with the pumpkin theme. Hope you won’t get tired of seeing pumpkins around here.
This little pumpkin face cheesecake was baked from the 6-cavity pumpkin face silicone mold from Wilton. When I first saw this silicone mold on the internet, I died for it. I made a few phone calls to the local baking supplies shops to inquire about it but no luck, they don’t have it in stock. Unfortunately, Wilton won’t ship directly to me. So, the only alternative I have is to buy through Amazon which is always my preferred online shopping platform when I can’t find the product locally and directly from the manufacturer. I have it ship within 3 days as time is running out for Halloween theme recipes and tutorials, so I don’t mind to pay extra bucks for expedited shipping. My friends said I am crazy… well, that’s me!
The pumpkin silicone mold is here and I need to bake something with it before I used it for non-edible crafts in future. So, I tried out a pumpkin cheesecake recipe from Life Made Simple and modified to suit my taste buds and available ingredients I can get from the locals. Do you believe that it is my second attempt to bake this cheesecake? The face didn’t stick well on the crust during the first attempt and the color was not contrast enough, so I tried again with oreo cookies as suggested by my baking pal, Mandy. I was so excited to see them come out nicely with crispy clear facial features of the classic spooky look 🙂
Please do try out the recipe and the method of molding, your guests will be amazed by these cute little pumpkin cheesecakes with upside down crust and faces showing.
