Cheesecakes

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Do many of you make cheesecakes in addition to decorated cakes and cookies? I was thinking of testing some cheesecake recipes from this book that I have, can't remember the name off hand. Anyway I figure this will be a great way to boost my customer base. People are really into cheesecakes these days and I've seen what some companies charge for them. Hint, Hint...The Cheesecake Factory. I figure that if I start offering cheesecakes then maybe I'll get more customers. I usually only get about 3-4 orders a month. Call me greedy but I want at least 3-5 a week. icon_cry.gificon_twisted.gif

Anyway, I'm always looking for ways to gain extra clients. Would you buy a delicious cheesecake? If so, what would you pay for it?

I make Cheesecake Pops (on a stick) for special occasions. Then dip them in chocolate and decorate each one differently. Tie a small ribbon at the end of each stick. Like these..
It's very easy. icon_smile.gif

prettycake... I saw this on foodnetwork.. How do you get the balls so round and hard enough to stay on the stick. Do you use a mold...i was wondering if the round lollipop mold for hard candy could be used.

I'd pay 25 easily~ and the most delicious wedding cake I've ever eaten was Cheesecakes surrounded by wonderful topping choices. It was as elegant as any wedding cake I've seen, and to die for tastewise!

Haven't researched making these yet.

I usually use the unbaked Cheesecake(the kind you do not bake, but chill only). Make it the usual way. Chill it until it is set in a pan or bowl, it really does not matter . Then when it is firm and set, use a Melon Baller OR a cookie scoop.. quickly with your hands, shape it into a perfect ball. Put the stick (candy stick-white), carefully roll it around on graham cracker crust that is loose. Put on cookie sheet line w/ parchment standing up, stick pointing up.
Then freeze until very cold and firm..then dip in chocolate. The chocolate will be like a "shell", so even if cheese cake get soft inside, it will not leak.
Then you can decorate each one the way you like it. I'm sure baked Cheese cake will do. But I would not put crust under it if your gonna make them into Cheese cake pops.

You shape them into balls after they are baked. But for the unbaked (chill only) recipe, you shape them once they have set. yes, any recipe will do. As long as it is firm enough to shape into balls, which is just like cutting them into wedges.. They have to be firm enough also to cut. icon_smile.gif

i use the cheesecake as a filling in cakes... one without a crust of course... i use 2 layer cakes and the middle layer is cheesecake, about the same height as the cakes... its firm enough that you do not need a gasket of buttercream to keeo it from oozing out of the cake... the wedding cake on my second page in my photos with all the bows was cheesecake filled

I made an incredible pumpkin cheesecake last year for Thanksgiving . . . it was gone in less than 5 minutes! My family raves about it because it was lighter than a traditional pumpkin pie but so delicious . . . PM me if you want the recipe. . . I think I got it out of one of my Better Homes cook books . . .

Hi all. I've only gotten one order for a cheesecake so far and unfortunately I had to turn the customer down because I have never made a cheesecake before. Fortunately for me there is a lady here in Virginia that has retired from making cheesecakes and cheesecake truffles and she is offering classes on how to make them. I took the cheesecake truffle class last year and now I am looking forward to making the cheesecakes. She will also be offering a class on cheesecakes for wedding cakes and I am looking forward to taking that class as well. It may be a little while before I can take the class but once I do I will be happy to share.

Happy baking.
