Hey, not bad huh!!! Actually, it tasted really really good. Not creamy at all! The cream cheese mixture became a little thicken like white chocolate after chilled and not too sweet as well. In addition, with fresh strawberries.!!
My son can't wait to have a slice of it. So, I have no choice! Just cut him a slice and then quickly keep it back to the fridge untill the next day.
I thought of taking a few shots in the next day but ended up taking nothing! Because everything just gone so fast! I don't even have a chance to take one shot of it.
