Vitagen Ribena Cheesecake

Work has been insanely stressful today. Other than the regular workload, I have additional marking of exam scripts. It was insanely stressful this afternoon as I marked the P4 EL compos. So even though I got home late, I had my dinner and went into my kitchen. To me, my kitchen is my haven. Baking/Cooking brings me to another world where my worries melt away. I'm just thankful that I had some energy left in me to bake. 

Having had some Ribena left coupled with some fruits from baking my mummy and ma's cake over the weekend, I decided to do some of these Vitagen Ribena Cups

Btw, here are the cakes I baked for my mummy and ma over the weekend! (: 
Ma's Pandan Kaya Cake..

Mummy's Mango Mousse Cake

With a pretty box (:

Anyway, I love pretty cakes (: 
This recipe takes about 2 hours to bake and I'd rate it a difficulty level 3 out of 5.

  1. Hi Cynthia, I have some packets of ready-to-drink Ribena. May I check with you if I am able to use 300ml of the drinks with 2 tbsp of gelatine for the topping?

    Thank you!

    1. hello!

      it maybe too diluted to give enough flavour (:

  2. Hi Cynthia,
    If I do not have vanilla bean paste, can I use vanilla essence??
