It’s been a crazy time! I had so much work and assignments, that didn’t really have time to bake. It took me 86 hours of no sleeping to finish my first Unity 3D ‘game’, that I was working on for my Computational Portraiture Class.
I’d be more than happy if you’d like take a glance and play! The link to the game is HERE If you’re interested of how I was doing it, what was the purpose and the goal of this project, you can read about it on my school blog : ITP MARCELA. Please let me know if you like it, if you see any bugs there, what would you like me to change!
And the cheesecake is just delicious! Best Peach Cheesecake I’ve ever tried. Soft, not to sweet, refreshing. With gorgeous meringue layer, topped with crumble. My friends fell in love with it!
