Chocolate orange cheesecake

Today I'm having a few friends over for festive food and nattering. I'm not really celebrating Christmas this year its all a bit too soon after Andy dying. I don't have a Christmas tree but I planted an apple tree in our garden. I still wanted to see our friends though so I'm having a day in the kitchen making lovely grub for them to enjoy. I'm gonna try and recreate this chocolate orange cheesecake and if it goes to plan I'll post the recipe, and if I can find my pipping bag I'm gonna make tardis cookie

Update Chocolate orange cheesecake mark 2 is ready and here's the recipe
