lemon curd cheesecake with lavender and white chocolate

This is possibly my favourite dessert creation yet. Definitely up there in my top 5. The smooth sweet creaminess of the topping with the tanginess of the lemon curd. Then you have the bite of the white chocolate on the crumbly buttery biscuit base and that elegant hint of lavender…
