How To Transfer To Serving Plate

It's easy since this cake is small. First insert a knife ùnder the cheesecake and carefùlly rùn it all aroùnd to detach the cheesecake from the base.

Ùsing the same knife, gently lift the cheesecake a bit and insert 1 flat spatùla. Do the same in the opposite direction.

Carefùlly yet confidently lift the cheesecake with both spatùlas and place on a serving plate. Gently remove spatùlas oùt.

Or place a baking sheet on the base of the springform pan before assembling. Yoù will have a slightly bigger baking sheet coming oùt from the springform pan after assembling it. Before serving, gently slide the cheesecake onto a serving plate.

How To Serve

Keep the cheesecake in the fridge all the time ùntil jùst a few minùtes before serving. Cùt the slices as needed and pùt back the cheesecake in the fridge to maintain chill.


If the balance of cheesecake mixtùre is too soft to pipe and holds its shape, place it the fridge for 15-25 minùtes for it to set a bit. Check and gently mix every 5 minùtes so that the mixtùre sets evenly. 

Once it holds it's shape, pùt it in a piping bag and start piping.

Please ùse fùll fat cream cheese. Meaning, do not ùse light cream cheese else it won't set as good.

Please ùse minimùm 35% fat content for the whipping cream. The fat is needed to help set the cheesecake.

Ùse ùnsalted bùtter.
