If you've got a soft spot for cakes made of cream cheese, then your lockdown is about to get a whole lot brighter. The dessert maestros at Burch & Purchese sweet studio have just kicked off an eight-day celebration of the humble cheesecake, in all its creamy, decadent glory.

Running from Sunday, August 8–Sunday, August 15, Cheesecake Week will see the venue's online store stocked with a limited-edition lineup of signature cheesecake creations, which you can order for in-store pick-up or have dropped to your door. We're talking a layered white forest number starring cherry jelly and a crunchy chocolate base; lime and vanilla cheesecake pots with strawberry jelly and mango cream; and even an ultra indulgent chocolate-infused riff on the classic Basque cheesecake. To name just a few, that is.

If you'd like to have a go yourself, you can also shop Darren Purchese's own cheesecake recipe e-book for $15. Plus, the man himself will be hosting a special virtual cheesecake demonstration on Sunday, August 15 — grab tickets to that for $25 (with the e-book included) right here.
