Expert Tips

  • Decorating Cheesecakes – Only decorate the cheesecakes that you are ready to serve.  The decorations will get soggy as they are stored. 
  • Room Temperature Ingredients – Make sure that all of the cheesecake ingredients are at room temperature. Allow cream cheese to cool to room temperature before mixing so that your cheesecake is smooth and not lumpy.  It is easier to mix the ingredients and the texture is better.
  • Baking Cheesecake –  Oven temperatures can vary greatly. You do not want to overbake these cheesecakes or the filling will not be the correct texture.
  • Line Muffin Tin – We recommend lining the muffin tin with paper cups. This helps with clean up and keeps the ingredients from sticking to the muffin tin.
  • Decorating Cheesecake – Allow the cheesecake to cool before decorating. We like to make the cheesecakes about a day in advance so they can easily be decorated.
