can you make it without freezing?

The actual question would be: I made a blackberry/white chocolate cheesecake last night. It is for Saturday. Did I make it too eary? Is it going to be fine in the fridge until then? I don't want some funky taste cheesecake icon_redface.gif

Thank you for your help!

Cheesecake will last up to a week in the fridge if covered well. You did not make it too early. It usually takes a good 24-48 hours before the cheesecake seasons and is ready to cut and have the best flavor.

I just came home from work and of course, CC was the first thing on my mind. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your reply! You made my day!Just one more question - is it enough for it to be in the cake carrier, or does it have to be wrapped? Thanks again!

Sorry, I just got home from work otherwise I would have answered you sooner. If the cheesecake is unmolded from the springpan it needs to be wrapped completely and well. If unmolded just saran wrap the top.

It is good morning here...I assume you are sound asleep now...but still, just wanted to say Thank you again, mkolmar, for taking the time to help me! Cheesecakes are not something I am very familiar with (except for the eating part icon_lol.gif ).

Just a note, cheesecakes freeze very well. Wrap with plastic wrap well, and they can stay up to six months.
