Disclaimer: I received Miss NiNi’s products for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.
Through some happy twist of fate, less than a week after telling Gil that I had a hankering for cheesecake, an opportunity came that I couldn’t refuse. The opportunity to receive and devour gourmet cheesecake from Miss NiNi’s Fine Desserts. Founder and championship competitive baker Miss Nini has been baking since she as a little girl, and all those decades of being the kitchen have allowed her to create and bake award winning cakes and cheesecakes.
I browsed the Miss NiNi’s website and struggled to choose which cheesecake I wanted to try. Best of the Best Lemon? Peanut Butter Fudge? Creamy Vanilla? They all sounded so good! Fortunately, there’s a solution for those of us who just can’t decide. The Create Your Own Cheesecake option allows you to choose the four different flavors you’d like in your cheesecake.
We received a special sampler cheesecake, which I have now named “Miss NiNi’s Wheel of Cheesecake Awesomeness.”
The cheesecake arrived in a perfectly-sized foam container with some dry ice to keep it cool. I let the cheesecake start to thaw, but before long, I couldn’t wait any longer. I had to try a slice and I was going to start with the Best of the Best Lemon. I chuckle at myself now as I think back and remember how I carefully cut each slice in half to I could “have it again later.” After the first bite of cheesecake, I realized that I needn’t have cut anything. I was about to eat the entire slice of cheesecake.
To say that Miss NiNi’s Best of the Best Lemon Cheesecake is my favorite cheesecake of all time would not be an exaggeration. It had a wonderful lemon flavor that was neither too strong nor too mild. There was a definite taste of lemon, while still the familiar “cheesecake” flavor. And the crust…my goodness. It was the most flavorful cheesecake crust I’ve ever tasted. If cookies were made from that crust, I would buy them from the barrel.
In order to ensure a thorough review, I took it upon myself to personally eat each flavor of cheesecake (except for Italian Tiramisu, which I saved for last and am so looking forward too.) Yes, I ate almost the entire Miss NiNi’s Wheel of Cheesecake Awesomeness by myself and I don’t regret a single bite. (Note: not all in one sitting. This was over the course of the week.)
With each flavor of Miss NiNi’s cheesecakes, I was impressed by the pure flavor of the ingredients and the consistent quality of the cheesecake. Te Raspberry Swirls in the Lemon Raspberry and Chocolate Raspberry cheesecakes tasted like fresh raspberry. The chocolate chunks in the Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake tasted like gourmet chocolate. The Peanut Butter Fudge Cheesecake perfectly combined the peanut butter and fudge flavors to create a decadent, but light, cheesecake. I’ve never had cheesecakes that were so rich in flavor without leaving me feeling full and heavy after eating.
Without a doubt, I will be ordering more of Miss NiNi’s delicious cheesecakes. Fortunately, you can order Miss NiNi’s cheesecakes and cakes online and they’ll ship anywhere in the continental US. I know I’ll be getting more Best of the Best Lemon cheesecake and would love to try the Creamy Vanilla cheesecake as well.
If you have a family event or party coming up, or if you’re looking for a great gift for someone who likes cheesecakes, I encourage you to check out Miss NiNi’s cheesecakes from Miss NiNi’s Fine Desserts.
