I have a birthday boy that really doesn't like cake or any desserts for that matter, but will scarf down cheesecake.
I've seen decorated ones in the gallery, but leaves me some questions.
Do you use regular icing or make a icing plaque sort of thing? Does the icing slide? Any recipes anyone recommends?

Thanks. I'm planning on doing a baked cheesecake for the first time, too. I grew up on the Knox box recipe. I think I may do a plaque. Should I put a parchment between the two?
Any more ideas, please?

Hi, I have always just used cream cheese frosting to decorate my cheesecakes, just treat it like any other cake. Make sure to do everythink ahead of time, you want to bake and let the cheesecake sit in the fridge overnight before decorating.

Good Luck thumbs_up.gif

I always decorate can use buttercream, ganache, fruit sauces...whatever you want! There are some examples in my photos beyond this one.

I always use meringue buttercreams on cheesecakes, it tends to stick on them better than an icing that has shortening in it.

Thanks everyone for the pointers! Jodie, your cheesecake looks SO good!
I gave up sweets for Lent, so hopefully I can keep my fingers out of it.
