Turning 30 is a huge milestone for most people. I wouldn’t deny the fact that I’ll experience that same emotional journey too when I’m close to that number in x years to come. To celebrate one of my coworkers’ 30th birthday, I decided to whip up this Japanese cheesecake, ‘cos she’s a Japanese too 🙂 Decoration was made into a cheerful look with lots of hundreds and thousands just to make the ‘turning 30’ sounds less… stressful and more… playful.

This recipe has been a winner for a long time, I’ve baked it millions of times. Though some people find it too crumbly, others find this just perfect, moist, etc… Why don’t you bake it and tell me how it turns out?
