Guess What This Is...

My son, Josh, got me this for Mother's Day.
Can you guess what this is?
It's a mini Durian cheesecake!

The "thorns" are made of matcha butter icing and the "flesh" is durian cheese cream.

Nice! But a tad too sweet for me. The smell? Well, durian is durian!

Real Durians
Haha!  Watch this cat's reaction to durians.


Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

I've seen this fruit before. I've never tried it though.

I loved the cat. I laughed out loud. I also linked this post to Feline Friday.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

I guessed it! I've never had durian. I don't think we have it here.

I never saw a durian. I was guessing it was a cheese wheel with green olives until I looked closer. Very interesting and I learned something new! Thanks for sharing at #OverTheMoon!

I knew what it was instantly, because I have lived in SE Asia, and eaten a lot of smelly Durian fruits in my day. What a wonderful looking cake. I hope it tasted great. :D

Thought it was durian related. I used to work in a greengrocers and the smell was legendary ;-) #FabFridayPost

I had to google it as I've never heard of them and now I know why they've never been seen in our local supermarket! They are very pretty looking though and that dessert is beautiful

I remember being at high school and my teacher had been travelling and she told us all about the durian fruit. I have yet to try it myself. Sarah #FabFridayPost

That looks like a wonderful cheesecake. I've heard of the way Durian smells though --- poor cat!

Duriaaaaaan! My hubby loves it so much but I can't take it anymore. It's just too strong for me. And to think that I'm coming from Lampung, Sumatra, which produces one of the best durian kampong back home!

Lana Pummill said...

It looks beautiful! I have never seen anything like this before! Thanks for sharing! #KCACOLS

Carol Cameleon said...

Wow, that's amazing! Thought it sounds a bit too sweet for me too. But what a fab idea. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time!

Jeremy Barnes said...

I have to admit that no matter how long I stared at that picture, I never would have guessed that! #KCACOLS

Crummy Mummy said...

Amazing! We lived in Japan for a couple of years so I'm quite familiar with durian - don't like them though! Hope you enjoyed the cheesecake #KCACOLS

Lydia C. Lee said...

Brilliant looking cake! I recognised it straight away in the thumbnail - that's why I swung by. I love in Singapore there are signs not to take Durian on trains or elevators. Cracks me up. Poor stinky Durian. #KCACOLS

I have never even heard of a durian! Looks so intriguing! #KCACOLS
