Kahlua Cheesecake

As Ching said, it looks as though i am the official birthday cake baker. Yes, Ching, self appointed. This is our dear friend, Kevin's birthday cake. He requested for cheesecake and since he loves wine, i decided to add liqueur and coffee to the Cotton Soft Japanese Cheesecake recipe and making it marbled.

i am sorry for the late reply. i have just managed to locate your comment.

kahlua is coffee liqueur and i think that you could use very thick instant coffee.
