I baked two cheesecakes today for my mother's birthday tommorrow. The plan was to see if I could stack them (one was 10 inches the other was 7). Well I did not wait long enough for it to cool and the top layer kinda fell apart while I was trying to stack (not a big deal since I was experimenting anyway). I was wondering if there is some sort of awesome dessert I could make out of the remains? Something like cake balls or such? Just wondering if anyone had any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I do this all the time. Crumble it up and make it into balls, freeze till firm, then dip in chocolate. YUMMY!
I love to do this with my turtle cheescake recipe too, but instead of making balls, I just cut into squares, freeze, and dip.

You can also use it as a layer in a trifle dessert.
Also try folding it into some whipped cream or buttercream and use as a cake filling....oh my heaven right here on earth!

After I had my daughter, the first meal I got had a dessert that consisted of alternating layers of a cheesecake type filling, cherries, and whipped topping in a sundae style glass dish. Now maybe it was because I hadn't eaten for 48 hours, maybe not... but it was DELICIOUS!

IT WAS! Of course, the fact that I was given a tray by mistake ( I wasn't supposed to be eating as I was post-operative) just made it that much more YUMMY! icon_lol.gif

buy some large strawberries....cut a slit in center but not all the way through...stuff with an ample amount of cheesecake and freeze for about 15 mins...then cover in melted white or milk or dark chocolate...but I would not make these until day you are going to serve...they will start weeping...divine!

I've never been a big fan of cake balls, but cheese cake balls dipped in chocolate...I'll have to reconsider. Sounds fabulous. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks so much for all the suggestions! They all sound scrumptuous. The stuffed strawberries sound so awesome, but I don't have strawberries on hand. So I will make the cheesecake balls which soound so great! Thanks again, ya'll are the bestest.
