Mango mango everywhere and at my kitchen too :) 

My heart goes for anything made with mangoes! Love the color and the flavor of mango more than any other fruit :) Vibrant bright yellow juicy mangoes are unbeatable :)

This season I was determined to churn up the mango cheese cake that I had bookmarked ages back from one of my favorite bloggers - Anushruthi of divine taste. He mango cheese cake was in my dreams so many days and here it is :) 

I have some slight changes in the measurements from hers and we all at home loved it :)

I used a peeler to get some strips of mango, rolled it and placed it on the cake for decoration.
