National Cheesecake Day (July 30) in the USA

According to NationalDayCalendar, today is National Cheesecake Day.

To knit a no-calorie cheesecake faux dessert, try starting with Amanda Berry’s pattern for a slice of BIRTHDAY CAKE, modified slightly and customized with blueberry or cherry topping based on the holly berry bobbles atop her PUDDINGS pattern. Both of these patterns are free downloads from LoveCrafts (formerly LoveKnitting).

Or make something less novel and entertaining but more practical with CaronCakes yarn in the “Blueberry Cheesecake” colorway (5 shades of blue in one cake). Michaels’ offers a free pattern for a basic Blueberry Cheesecake garter stitch shawl.

Consider baking individual cup-cake size no-fuss cheesecakes with vanilla wafer cookie crust or Oreo cookie crust. Easy recipes are available online from a wide variety of sources.

Happy Cheesecake Day!

I should probably eat cheesecake today, as a way to show respect and all…
