I suck at making/decorating cakes

I decided to make Mr T a cake for his birthday since it's such a big birthday (30th). I made a vegan cheesecake using this recipe from vegweb.

The 'cheesecake' part actually tasted pretty good and even my family approved. The problem is the crust tasted a little burnt despite me following the cooking instructions. It also looked little too brown and well ugly on top. It was also much smaller that I imagined. This is the slightly better look with melted chocolate and strawberries. Next time I will skip the chocolate. I had to decorate it in a hurry for a family celebration and Mr T ended up actually decorating his own cake. Poor Mr T!

I think it looks great, at least in the photo! That melted chocolate makes it look SOOOO rich.

Thanks, but I think it looks sloppy!

Theresa, it wasn't just melted chocolate it was a recipe for chocolate glaze but you are right it was rich, too RICH.
