Raspberry Cheesecakes (Treats For Co-Irkers)

Dearest Co-Irkers,

The white chocolate raspberry cheesecakes you're eating this morning were supposed to look like the one in the photo above. In fact, they actually did look like that in my mind's eye when I was baking them, and then again yesterday when I decorated just a few to see how well they'd hold up overnight in the refrigerator. For you see, as much as I love you all, I simply refuse to drag my sorry derriere out of bed at 5:00 a.m. to decorate treats for you. Those few that I decorated yesterday did not withstand the test of time, and this morning I awoke to droopy whipped cream and bleeding raspberries. Therefore, your treats came to you unadorned and probably bleeding their little raspberry hearts out. I hope the whipped cream-filled pastry bag is still intact and hasn't discharged its contents all over your cupcake liners. If so, please feel free to take your frustration out on hubby. That's what I do. And while you're at it, give him a pat on the shoulder and an "attaboy," because he had to listen to me whine about stupid whipped cream and raspberry bleed all night.


P.S. The recipe for these mini-cheesecakes and the (supposed to be) stabilized whipped cream can be found here.

I didn't want you to think that we had no comment - we are simply waiting until lunch to try them. They look divine and we can't wait to decorate;)
We'll let you know the minute they cross our lips.

Beautiful, as always! It's really hard to make whipped cream stay in place in the summer. I have tried countless times, but always have similar problems. I'm sure they are absolutely delicious, though!

The poor men - what they have to put up with...mmm white chocolate raspberry cheesecakes, HOMEMADE kaiser rolls with pulled pork, a perfectionist wife that loves to cook. I'm thinkin your guy's a lot like mine - he can't wait to get home and see what's for dinner. LOL.

Even if they got a little sad looking I bet they still tasted delicious!!

Love, Love, Love! My only complaint? The other co-irkers wouldn't share theirs.

Oh and thanks for the spoons - but, really? Do you not know us by now?

We will be sending you photos of our whipped cream concoctions.

Thank you, our goddess of goodness.

Co Irker: It really tickled me that you guys took pictures and sent them to me. Glad you enjoyed them!

Jen: I was tempted to just use Cool Whip for that very reason, but I just couldn't bring myself to using anything but the real thing.

June: LOL...I thinking that you're correct about that.

Steph: Even ugly can taste good!
