Frosting is not an option. I don't want to send just a plain Jane to an office luncheon. Anyone with any ideas?

A vanilla bean mousse or a stabilized whipped cream looks nice as large rosettes around the edge. You could make a large GP or cut a strawberry into a flower for the middle. Simple, but a little dressy.

Would a powdered sugar stencil last long enough to be seen by the office crew before it's cut? Not sure if it would soak into the cheesecake and disappear too quickly.

What about a design with chocolate on top? Could you melt some white or dark chocolate and do a criss cross drizzle kind of thing?

I agree..a nice carmel or chocolate drizzle is always nice. What kind of cheescake is it? I too, am going to have to research and see what stabilized whip cream is.

drizzled or grated chocolate is always good!

If you have two layers just crunch up some(half a package the fudgies work best for this filling and all) Oreo cookies and add 1TBSP of melted butter and mix till it's like moist soil. Pack a nice layer of that as the filling and stack them. Make whipped ganache and ice and decorate like a cake like a cake.

Stabilized whipped cream is just a term that I use for whipped cream that has some stabilizer to it. If you notice that when you whip up fresh cream over time it will weep or start to melt. If you add some unflavored gelatin to it, it stabilizes the cream so that you dont get that weeping or melting.

I have an excellent recipe for a white chocolate vanilla mousse if you are interested.

I always like to decorate my cheesecake with a chocolate wrap. On top is a layer of whipped cream and tons and tons of fresh berries as the topping. Here is a picture of what I made recently:

I usually add raspberries but I couldn't find fresh ones on that day.
