Hi there!

What do you use to decorate cheesecakes? A friend requested a cheesecake for her birthday party and I am totally clueless! Thanks!

I did a cheesecake for a wedding (actually 3 cheesecakes on the floating stand)-I did the border in buttercream-she wanted a little sweet with the creamcheese-she wanted silk flowers on it-.you could actually use a thinned creamcheese icing for the border.
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!

Love cheesecakes!!!! icon_lol.gif I usually decorate with a border of a whipped cream, flavored to match the cake, piped on with a rosette tip. If I'm making my Cappuccino cheesecake, I'll also add some chocolate shavings. If I'm making my Dreamsicle Cheesecake, I pipe a border and then add those dreamsicle candies! And so on!! If I need to add a message, I either pipe it on as usual or use a birthday pick or make up my own little sign and laminate it and stick it in the middle. You could also cover it with a ganache...yum! You really do have a lot of choices. I've heard where some people just use buttercream and decorate just as they would a regular cake, but I've never tried that so I can't give you any advice there! Hope this helps. Happy baking, Missey
