Bake Me A Wish New York Cheesecake

Anywho…I was lucky enough to try out their New York Cheesecake and an assortment of their gourmet brownies.

Oh. My. Stars. (My lucky stars, that is.)

Bake Me A Wish New York Cheesecake

I know I should have removed the wrapper and all that and put it on a pretty plate and set it all up to look like a professional photo shoot involving cheesecake…but, well, ummm…once the plastic came off, no one was patient enough for me to go through all that rigamarole. Just wasn’t happening, folks. Here’s what I can tell you: It tastes wonderful. Rich and full of flavor, but not overwhelming. Of course, it’s cheesecake, which usually (not always, though — don’t judge me!) means you’re not eating a huge chunk…and this worked out to be the perfect size.

Bake Me A Wish New York Cheesecake


I mean, good gravy, how much cheesecake should be in a two-person household? It’s the perfect size (7 inches round) for a two- or three-person household (or to serve to a few guests with coffee…oh man, I can’t stop thinking about cheesecake now), as it serves 6-8 people. That’s just the right size cheesecake. And, I love the buttery graham cracker crust almost as much as I love the cheesecake itself. Mmmm. So good.

Bake Me A Wish Gourmet Brownies

Decadent. And De-licious. And De-lightful. And De-vine (OK, OK, I know it’s “divine” but I have a theme going here…work with me, folks).

Bake Me A Wish Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

These are, without question, the best brownies ever. Like ever ever. Have you ever taken a bite of something and just started letting out all sorts of moans and sighs and whatnot? Yeah, that’s these brownies. They’re big and rich and wonderfully decadent (yes, I said it twice…but these brownies are worthy of saying it two times). I wound up cutting each one in half — in part so I could share the awesomeness that is Bake Me a Wish!, partially to make them last longer, and a little bit to make me feel a tad less guilty about indulging in all these splendid brownies.

I’m not sure which one was my favorite, or if I can even pick a favorite…because each brownie is an entirely different experience. A yummy, scrumptious (yes, I’m saying it again!), and out-of-this-world experience. I really, really liked the Peanut Butter Chip Brownie, but I’m kinda partial to peanut butter (and by “kinda,” I mean I think it should be its own food group), so that gives it something of an unfair advantage. The Cheesecake Brownie is also divine…but I sure as heck don’t have a single complaint about the Velvet Ganache or the Heath Bar Blondie (other than the fact that I need more)!

I caved and gave one of these to my mother on her birthday (hey, you need a special reason to part with one of these babies!) as well as one to my mother-in-law on her birthday (it was not easy sacrificing two of these brownies, let me tell you!). I have one brownie left, and I am trying to hold off on eating it. I just don’t want it to end!

Bake Me A Wish has so much to offer — you will a) be swooning over the choices and b) find it difficult to decide on what to purchase. Trust me. There are just so many wonderful cakes and cookies and brownies to pick from…it’s the kind of task you really don’t mind undertaking. Trust me when I tell you that Bake Me a Wish! is one of those gifts that will make an impact, that will make people say, “Wow.” Like, literally. Wow.

And, here’s the good news…you can win your very own New York Cheesecake AND Gourmet Brownie sampler just like I received! Giddy up, folks!

  1. Jenna Wood says

    I’ve ordered bake ME A Wish! many times, and have never been disappointed. Their speed of service is almost as great as their customer service, and their cakes are so decadent they feed a lot of people!

  2. Dianne McVetty says

    I would love to try the Strawberry Shortcake Gourmet Cake or the New York Cheesecake. They all look delicious! Thanks.

  3. Betty says

    Looking at those cakes, there is no wrong choice. I’d love the Tiramisu Classico Cake and maybe the Carrot cake as second choice

  4. Carolann Leibenguth says

    My lands my mouth is watering and who could pick just one lol. My two favorite flavors would have to be the Tiramisu and the Carrot Cake.

  5. Sacha Schroeder says

    Oh my gosh! It all looks amazing but the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake caught my eye! My mouth is watering!

  6. Julie B. says

    I’d love to try the Red Velvet Chocolate Cake, or the Vanilla Bean Cake. I’m a big cake fan, so there is not a cake I do not like, although not a fan of raisins in cakes, but that is the only caveat.

  7. Anastasia says

    Wow! I’d love to try…. EVERYTHING THEY MAKE lol :) I’ll start with the Caramel Apple Crumb Cake :) mmmmmmmm :)

  8. Missy W says

    They all look wonderful but after searching for a bit the strawberry shortcake definitely caught my eye!

  9. Natalie Vandenberghe says

    I’d love to try the Magic Bar Brownie Cake or one of the coffee cakes. I’ve already enjoyed the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake and thought it was delicious (so I’m pretty sure everything else Bake-Me-A-Wish offers is good, too!)
    Thanks for the giveaway.
    p.s. I’ve often wondered why if the host of a giveaway asks for my email address in the RC form, they send the win notification to the email associated with my FB account. You’re pretty smart to realize they’re not always the same 😉

  10. Barbara R. says

    “Red Velvet Chocolate Cake “, because it reminds me of My Mom’s cake that she use to bake. Oh the delicious memories and delight in coming home to this cake.

  11. Shawndra Befort says

    My favorite has to be the Viennese Coffee Cake – Cinnamon. I can’t get enough cinnamon coffee cake. This is the perfect amount of cake and sweetness.

  12. Jennifer R says

    My favorite Bake Me A Wish Cake is the Tiramisu Classico Cake. The description of the two layers of coffee-washed cake with classic mascarpone custard filling in between and garnished with delicious coffee whipped cream, dark chocolate shaves and a dusting of cocoa makes my mouth water just writing about it. I would love to try this one.

  13. Tracy Robertson says

    The first on my list would be that Chocolate Mousse Torte Cake, but you are right that it’s hard to choose because so many things are screaming to be tried!

  14. says

    I would probably opt for the Classic Layer Cake Sampler – that way – for the price of 1 cake, I get 4 smaller cakes and get 4 different types LOL I really like that they do that :)

  15. heather kaufman says

    I would love the freedom cake. Their are so many members of my family, husband included, serving in the US military. I love to buy from causes that benefit them, also!!!!

  16. says

    I can’t pick just one, so I’d have to go with the Bakery Combo so I could try several things! :) The Heath Bar Blondie sounds pretty amazing, too!

  17. Angela Ash says

    Mmm! Cheesecake & Brownies are the surf and turf of desserts for me. The Singular Sensation 4-Pack looks great. I love variety.

  18. tamatha hunter says

    love the idea behind the freedom cakes, we get one & so does an active duty soldier, that is awesome.
