With my love and passion for all things old, I wanted to modernize and vintage cherry cheesecake. I maybe in with the old and out with the new, but not entirely living in the past or in the future. Life is about balance, and cheesecake is a quintessential American summertime dessert.
I found this vintage 1970's cherry and plum dress designed by Lord + Taylor, which is the oldest department store in America. Founded in 1826, this is the perfect inspiration to make something that is old, but in a way.
Cherries are one of the most beloved stone fruits and has historic roots with the famous Washington cherry tree myth. In the 1970's, cherry cheesecake became one of the most popular desserts with families and at parties.
"Life is just a bowl of cherries, don't take it serious, its mysterious. Life is just a bowl of cherries, so live and laugh and laugh at love, love a laugh, laugh and love."
