Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (180 fan) | 400°F | gas 6.
2.
To make the pastry, rub the butter into the flour and add just enough cold water to bind. Chill for 30 minutes then roll out on a floured surface. Use the pastry to line a square cake tin. Prick the pastry with a fork, line with clingfilm and fill with baking beans or rice.
3.
Bake for 10 minutes then remove the clingfilm and baking beans and cook for another 8 minutes to crisp.
4.
Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C (160 fan) | 350°F | gas 4.
5.
Whisk together the filling ingredients until smooth. Spoon the cheesecake mixture into the pastry case, levelling the top with a palette knife.
6.
Bake the cheesecake for 40 - 50 minutes or until the centre is only just set. Leave to cool completely in the tin.
7.
Brush the rose petals and mint leaves with a thin layer of egg white and dip them in the caster sugar. Leave to dry on a wire rack for 2 hours before decorating the top of the cheesecake.
