Cheesecake with Ricotta, Mascarpone and White Chocolate

Every year for the birthday parties of my children I push myself to try new cakes and with new creams to stuff them. Last year for the 15th year of my daughter Clelia I made a cake that the guests loved very much, the delicious Marble cake.

This year I tried to make a cheesecake with a very light cream of ricotta, mascarpone and white chocolate covered with a layer of milk chocolate ganache, placed on a base made of cocoa and butter biscuits. It was also a success this year too.
