Zoe says: "A fine effort - lovely and level, bursting with plump sultanas and finished off with a delicate dusting of icing sugar."
Zoe says: "A very friendly, unassuming slice of cheesecake - looks soft, inviting and scrumptious!"
Zoe says: "A lovely looking thing with a delightful 'toasted' look to the crust. Smooth inside, but perhaps a little light on the sultanas?"
Zoe says: "A very professional, clean cut slice. Beautifully level with a nice colour to the crust and a pleasing scattering of sultanas."
Zoe says: "A proud wedge of cheesecake if ever I saw one! Very tempting, and I like the generous dusting of icing sugar. I kind of like how the raisins have sunk a little too!"
Zoe says: "This one probably best resembles Mary's - almost cake-like, with a lovely golden colour and just the right amount of icing sugar."
Zoe says: "A very pretty slice - I love the use of blueberries, and the crust again has a gorgeous golden colour to it. The slight ridge around the edge only adds to its charm."

Congratulations Rachel, and happy baking everyone!"
