Treat to Try: Cookies n’ Cream Cheesecake from Sweet Cheese
Sweet Cheese has a couple of tag lines on its business cards: “Eat sweet cheese” and “Committed to Cheesecakes.” Having never really considered cheesecake as a “sweet cheese,” the first motto is attention getting. Having tried out the bakery’s goods, the second motto is deliciously obvious.
Sweet Cheese makes cheesecakes in a variety of fantastical flavors. Its website offers up the staggering array in color photos. There’s chocolate, strawberry shortcake, key lime, pineapple upside-down, maple bacon, and you can also create your own flavor. The cakes can be ordered whole, or Sweet Cheese also sells slices at events, neatly packaged in custom-fit clamshells, all ready for consumption.
The slices of cheesecake are fancy, each one presenting itself as a perfect, flawless work of art with straight, clean lines leading to lush dollops of garnished whipped cream on top. During the test-drive, the fork glides through the slices like — the typical analogy is “like a knife through hot butter,” but the cheesecake is smoother than even that. Otherworldly, it backs up that silky texture with full on flavor that makes you pause after each bite to appreciate it.
So far, we’ve worked our way through two flavors of cheesecake. There’s a chocolate version with a dollop of whipped cream and a little piece of pure chocolate on top. It delivers its soothing, rich flavors with a cookie crust. That same cookie crust also supports a cookies n’ cream version of the cheesecakes. This other rendition is pale, almost white, and dotted with chunks of sandwich cookies like a dalmatian. The cookie bits are softened by the cheesecake, but still undeniably oreo-ish.
Sweet Cheese operates a truck and a catering business. You can order the cheesecake whole, or follow the business on social media and track Sweet Cheese at a market or event for a slice.
