My niece just asked me to make cheesecake instead of a regular cake for her birthday. That's fine with me but I want to decorate it in some way. I wanted to make something really decadent and over-the-top and a cheesecake will do but i want it to be really impressive and fancy. anybody got any ideas?
You can always top it in ganache and chocolate covered strawberries, or atleast that says decadent to me.
I've frosted cheesecake with cream cheese frosting before and then you can decorate it just like a regular buttercream cake. Plus it's delicious! Ganache would be excellent too, just depends on if you want a chocolate or white frosted cake. Yummy!!!
I just did a ganache topped cake. I just added swirls of mousse with truffles on top, with some gumpaste hydrangeas, its in my photos, not very girly, but looked decadent.
Thanks for the ideas. You know they always say "Be careful what you ask for."? Well I had all these ideas about what I wanted to do and then what'd I do? I called her and asked her what she wanted!
Nothing like what I had in mind! Oh well! I've never made a cheesecake, it's time I learned!
