Hey, my husband wants his birthday cake to be cheesecake, but I still want to decorate it all crazy with fondant and figures, etc. Can I use fondant with cheesecake? Has anybody done this? Cheesecake has to be refrigerated, but fondant gets all dewy if you refrigerate it and then let it come to room temp.
Has anyone used any other sort of covering for cheescake? Modeling chocolate, maybe? Hmmm..
I love to wrap cheesecake in chocolate decorated with chocolate transfers. There are several examples in my photos. I order my transfers from Beryls.
Thanks for the idea, Jodie!
I really want to do an ocean theme with blue fondant and figures, etc. Does anybody know if what I can use to cover the cheesecake that will look like fondant (or can I use fondant?)?
What about Choco-Pan??? They even have blue!
Oh shoot...this was just on Sugar Rush. I think the decorator used modeling chocolate. Hold on...yep...chocolate and corn syrup over top of her cheesecake shaped like a fish. You should see that episode.
Oh, yeah! I saw that! I just couldn't remember what show it was on, and I didn't catch what she said she used. Do you remember what her name was?
I have it DVRed so I have to check it...Elegant Cheesecakes. I think the website is elegantcheesecakes.com. Good luck. Can't wait to see yours!
You can cover them with fondant.
What about when you need to refrigerate them because they're cheesecake? What do you do about the wet-looking fondant? If you want to serve it chilled with the fondant, the fondant will look shiny and wet. But if you want to let the fondant dry out a little bit after being refrigerated, then the cheesecake will be room temp.
