Very few people will refuse a piece of cheesecake.  I have found this to be a universal truth — except when it’s not — like last week, when I hosted my first ever CHEESECAKE GIVEAWAY.

Cheesecake Give Away!

tiramisu cheesecake

The first person who walks into Medicine Beach Market (after 9:30am) today, and tells me that “Island Vittles Rocks” gets a BIG piece of this INSANE Tiramisu Cheesecake with Rum Creme Anglaise.

Seriously — no April Fools.

I’m thinking a Penderite will win this.  Mainlanders could try taking the ferry, but something tells me you’ll lose out — and in my world, there is no 2nd place.
