Maas characters with cheesecakes? Check out these yummy and addicting cheesecake flavors paired with your favorite Sarah J. Maas characters.

Throne of Glass Series

Smores cheesecake is perfect for our Fireheart. Aelin’s taste for sweets makes this chocolate and marshmallow cheesecake the perfect choice. It doesn’t hurt that the marshmallows are roasted in honor of our favorite fiery queen.

Rowan – Peppermint

What pairs better with our favorite icy fae than the refreshing taste of peppermint? This peppermint-filled cheesecake combined with its chocolate cookie crust suits Rowan to a T. He doesn’t have a taste for sweets like Aelin does, but we know he’d definitely take a few bites.

Lysandra – White Chocolate Raspberry

Lysandra is sweet and seductive, just like this white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake. These dual flavors represent Lysandra’s nature as she comes across as a potential mean girl, only for people to uncover her strong and caring personality. The raspberries matching her lipstick are just a plus.

ACOTAR Series

Rhys – Black Forrest

Anything paired with Rhys has to be chocolate-related cause, let’s face it, who doesn’t love chocolate? Cherries being one of the most seductive fruits is another must for our favorite high lord. Black Forrest cheesecake is one that will always have you going back for another slice.

Suriel – Green Tea Cheesecake

No one spills the tea like Suriel does, so, of course, they are paired with green tea cheesecake. Suriel is not the most seen character throughout the series, so it’s only fitting that they are a more illusive cheesecake flavor. The calming green tea flavor is sure to calm you down when she drops truth bombs left and right.

Nesta – Lemon Meringue

We all know Nesta can be as sour as lemon, so this should come as no surprise. We also know that she has a sweet side, like meringue. When we first meet Nesta, we’re positive she won’t be a fan favorite, just like how lemon meringue isn’t your obvious cheesecake choice, but once you try it, you won’t soon forget its dueling flavors.

Crescent City Series

Bryce – Turtle

Caramel is sweet and sometimes a bit salty, just like the sassy Bryce. The caramel, paired with the toughness of nuts, makes turtle cheesecake a great match for our favorite starborn fae. Turtle cheesecake makes you crave more every time, just like how we’re craving more Bryce content in the upcoming books.

Hunt – Peanut Butter

Hunt is like Peanut Butter; once you get a taste of his snarky and protective nature, you keep going back for more. Peanut butter is always placed in unlikely food combos, similar to how Hunt is unlikely to be paired with Bryce or any of the other characters. Peanut butter is one of the widely love flavors, and we can’t deny that Hunt has earned his spot in most of our book boyfriend’s list.

Ruhn – Birthday Cake

Our fae prince sure does love to party, which is why birthday cake cheesecake is the perfect pairing for him. This sprinkle-infused cheesecake represents his kind and open-minded personality. Just like how birthday cake cheesecake is there for all your important moments, so is Ruhn.


Now that you’re drooling over cheesecake, it might be time to go out and buy a slice and reminiscence about your favorite Sarah J. Maas character.
