I've seen in a book you can cover cheesecake with fondant. I would assume you would have to have a really sturdy cheesecake in order to do this. I haven't personally tried it and have seen others on advising against it. Good luck, let us know how it turns out. thumbs_up.gif (What's the worst that could happen, right? icon_evil.gif )

i love the idea and pics ive seen where people have covered the sides in chocolate and covered the top with chocolate dipped strawberries, or i suppose you could use anything to cover the top

I just did a practice cake. I covered a cheese cake in ganache it worked great. The photo is in my album. We haven't tasted it yet it's in the freezer untill the weekend.

Wrap the sides with chocolate, lay whipped cream on top and throw in different types of berries.

Ganache works great. You can also frost withbuttercream like a normal cake, believe it or not. Havn't tried fondant- think there could be issues there.

Good luck!

i just did a cheesecake today. i did the bottom layer in plain cheesecake then a layer of strawberry filling on top of that and then finally stacked a layer of strawberry cake on top of that and frosted and decorated as with any cake. i did buttercream wth fondant accents. i have done this several times before. just think of it as any other layer of cake.

yeah but does that taste good? lol. I cant imagine buttercream on cheesecake. Have you actually tasted it? Im curious about this too. Ive used ganache before and I think if any of my customers wants a decorated cheesecake Ill probably suggest ganache before anything else.

tastes great. the buttercream is only on the crust of the cheesecake. lots of cake shops do it this way too. really yummy. i have even covered in buttercream and then fondant. still tastes good. my favorite is cheesecake with a layer of raspberry filling and then chocolate cake on top. so yummy. and yes when i ate it it was also covered in buttercream.
