I need to make an elephant ear cheesecake for a benefit auction this week. I was going to use cinnamon graham crackers for the crust and a cream cheese filling flavored with vanilla and cinnamon. I'm also going to make a cinnamon flavored cookie dough and drop small dough balls into the cheesecake batter. I have done similar cheesecakes using this technique with great success. I'm stumped as to what to top the cheesecake with for decorations. I've been thinking about spreading a whipped cinnamon and sugar butter on top of the cheesecake with some cinnamon sticks for added decorations. I'm not sure if I dare make mini elephant ears to use as a decoration. I'm afraid the elephant ears would become soggy and not very edible. I'm not sure of a good crumble topping I could use that would stay crunchy either. Any suggestions for a good topping are appreciated.
