Toasted Coconut Dark Chocolate Fleur de Sel Cheesecake

The classic duo of dark chocolate and coconut achieves a new degree of decadence in this extravagant cheesecake, handcrafted by Jamie Cantor and her team at L.A.'s Platine Bakery. It starts off with a New York-style cheesecake batter, enriched with pure coconut oil and shredded coconut. For the ultimate combination of flavors and textures, bakers stir in bits of candy bark made from dark chocolate, toasted coconut and a touch of fleur de sel. The finishing touch: a luscious topping of golden-brown coconut. Keep the cheesecake in your freezer, then simply thaw and serve as an easy, elegant last-minute dessert for a dinner party or other special occasion. Cake is 8" diam., 2 1/2" high; 3 lb. 8 oz. (12-16 servings). Shipped frozen. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

I debated whether to order, the price is priceless?
I received it and immediately put in the freezer.This cheesecakes was to be for a birthday celebration.
I defrosted in the fridge for two days, (I keep my fridge and freezer set to a high setting).
When I tried to cut it into serving pieces, the cake separated from the crust, the crust was like steel. I used a sharp knife, I know how and what to use to cut a cheesecake. We all love chocolate and coconut, it was the lack of contrast in flavors and texture. The cheesecake lacked any sweetness, and tasted sour.
Nobody ate the cake. I am glad I had ice cream in the freeszer, never hurts to have a back-up.
I have been on the fence for years, whether to order the coconut cake, and when I saw this cheesecake, bingo. Well, I've never won at bingo, either.
It's an expensive cake.
I expected more, and I didn't receive it.
The cake should be rich and have flavor, sweetness as a contrast.
I won't order food again from William Sonoma.
Cons: Disappointing, Texture, Flavor

I would recommend you place your order at least 10 days in advance of your event - then get ready for a treat. This cheesecake lives up to Platine bakery's promise to "Eat Rich." The addition of the Fleur de Sel is genious - it makes all the flavors pop! Ordered it for my husband's birthday and we both agreed that it was one of the best, most decadent desserts we've ever had!
Pros: Texture, Easy to Prepare, Quality, Good for Entertaining, Decadent, Flavor
