“My burnt cheesecake was inspired by the Malaysian traditional dessert of Onde-Onde. By maintaining the originality of traditional taste and main ingredients of Onde-Onde such as coconut milk, gula Melaka and pandan leaves, and then we adapted into the modern taste of creamy burnt cheesecake. You all Malaysian will be excited and surely like it =)” – Siti Shazwani
