The Best Cheesecake in the World

I’m not kidding! This literally is the best cheesecake in the world. The fact that my daughter made it, has absolutely nothing to do with it. Honest! Martha made this at school last week, and it was so grub-tastic, that I had to share it with you. You’ll need a 20cm foil tin or flan…
