I'm not sure if I'm posting this question in the right spot but hopefully someone can help me.

I'm making individual cheesecakes for a fund raiser (I'm not a professional, just for fun baker). The cheesecakes have small cracks on the top so I want to cover them with something. I was thinking I could just pipe some fresh whipped cream on them just before serving BUT I have to travel about a half hour for the event and be there early to set up and I don't know that whipped cream will be okay for piping that long. I can't wait until I get there to whip it either. I do have Dream Whip but have never used it for this so I don't know really how it works/tastes? Any thoughts or ideas? The cheesecakes are pecan pie cheesecake so I could put some sort of praline topping on them too but don't have any recipes....help!

Can you turn the cheesecakes out onto the serving plates upside down (so the crack doesn't show)....

If not, I'd opt for a praline topping. icon_smile.gif

Here's a highly rated recipe for praline sundae topping:

You could always put your whipped cream in a small icechest until tiem to serve. That would keep it cold. But the Praline topping sounds wonderful too.

Could you make a strusel topping like I do for my caramel apple cheesecake and drizzle a little caramel over the top? You could also throw some cookies in a food processor add a little sugar and cut in some cold butter until it resembles a crumb topping. Bake in the oven for a few minutes and sprinkle over the top. Just an idea. Or even maybe the cooked apple slices in my recipe. I bet that would go well with your yummy sounding cheesecake. http://www.food.com/recipe/dads-caramel-apple-cheesecake-336906

You could also use Pastry Pride. It's a non dairy whipped topping and it will hold up for hours. I decorate all my cakes with it. You could also add any flavoring to it too. Just this weekend I made a dinosaur cake for my grandson on Saturday night, put it in the fridge and went to sleep. At 3:00am, we loaded it up in my SUV and drove 6 hours to where he lives.Got there at 9:00am, took him to breakfast and shopping then got back to his home around 1:00pm and had cake! It held up perfectly, no problems at all!

Piping gel will stabilize whipped cream. But... have you looked into the traditional sweetened sour cream toppings that cover cheesecake cracks, homemade caramel, fruit puree?
