Chocolate Cheesecake Deja Vu

If this looks familiar it's because we already encountered this choco-cheesecake last month.  Our friend Hiro is clearly a cheesecake afficionado and we can count on him delivering on this towards the end of each month.  This is like a vanilla cheesecake molded on top of a dense chocolate one.  The two complement each other well and go great with a cup of java.

The one annoying thing is that the bakers put a cardboard base on the cake which likes to adhere to the  bottom of the cake and makes it difficult to cut. In fact, at first you think that it is part of the cake but soon realize you're trying to slice cardboard. You can see the gashes in the cardboard bottom in the pictures. Once you know what is happening the slicing becomes much easier. Instead of cardboard we suggest they try something edible.

We spent some time discussing the upcoming Brown Commencement.  One of our cake hour attendees was going to be marching with one of the honorary degree recipients - well actually the recipient's representative as the degree was given in absentia.  The honorees ran the gamut from politicians to actors to writers to activists and made for an interesting group.  Congratulations to them!!
