Steps

1. Prep: Bring the cream cheese to room temperature. Soak the gelatin powder in the water. Line the tin with baking paper. Soak the salt-preserved sakura blossoms in water.
2. Crust: Crush the biscuits and mix together well with the butter. Pack tightly into the bottom of the cake tin and chill in the refrigerator.
3. No-bake cheesecake: Put the cream cheese in a bowl and beat until smooth. Mix in the sugar and add the yogurt in 2 parts.
4. In a separate bowl, whip the cream and sakura liqueur until stiff peaks form.
5. Heat the gelatin from Step 1 in a 600 W microwave for 20 seconds then mix into the cream cheese.
6. Add the cream mixture to the cream cheese mixture in 3 parts, mixing well after each addition. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and leave to chill and set in the refrigerator.
7. Jello: Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved. Mix in the gelatin and water mixture after warming it for 20 seconds in a 600 W microwave.
8. Once cooled a little, mix in the sakura liqueur and add just the petals of the salt-preserved sakura blossoms (or just top on the cake).
9. Rest the bowl over a bowl of ice and when the mixture is chilled enough to be a little firm around the edges, pour it into the main cake tin and leave everything to chill and set in the refrigerator for 1/2 day.
10. It's ready! If you cut this cheesecake with a slightly warmed knife, it will cut cleanly.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to eat a cake that tasted like cherry blossoms! So I made one myself.
