Comments

For the cheesecake filling the spoon size for the beetroot powder, vanilla extract and caster sugar isn't given - is it tsp for all 3? Or is the sugar tbsp? Am assuming it's tsp given the instruction for the freeze dried raspberries in the garnish?

Hi, Clare. You're right - that's not very clear. Thank you for pointing it out!
I would say that you have some "wiggle room" on the exact amounts for those ingredients. If you stay within the realm of reason, you can customize the level of sweetness and intensity of the color to your liking. However, I understand the need for clarity in measurements, and I will contact Chef Julie and get more details for you.

Good news, Clare. I've got more information for you. Here are amounts for the ingredients where the quantity was unclear:
Beetroot powder 1 tbsp
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Caster sugar 2 tbsp
Frozen raspberries 75g
Crumbled freeze-dried raspberries 2 tbsp
Dried rose petals per slice 1-2 tbsp

We'd love to hear how the recipe worked out for you!
