Mango Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

It's my sis's birthday, so decided to try making a nice cake for her. But I thought a normal chocolate cake was quite boring since she could have bought it anywhere, so decided to trying making something unique and of my own creation and I came up with this Mango Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake. Of course, I don't just come out with the recipe without consulting the website. Found this Mango Cheesecake recipe from and decided to give it a try and added some chocolate to make it more interesting. I frosted the cake with the chocolate butter frosting used in my previous Chocolate Birthday Cheesecake. Made an angel as my sis likes angel, but think it still look a little childish and not as elegant as I have wanted. Well, here's the finished product.
