CHEESECAKE FIX TIPS

LET YOUR CHEESECAKE COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE REFRIGERATING.
After your cheesecake comes out of the oven it is
important to let it cool completely on a wire rack
before chilling, why?

First, putting a hot cheesecake in the fridge results
in “sweating” or condensation, which will give your
cheesecake an ugly appearance and gluey texture on top.
Second, the shock of the temperature change can cause
cracks in the top of your cake. Ah hah!

There is no issue with creaking that a little topping
to the rescue can't fix. Drizzle chocolate, caramel or
even fruit on top and nobody is the wiser.
