What do you mean by a 3 layer cheesecake? Are you trying to make a 3 tiered cheesecake? Or are you just making a 6" round cheesecake that will be deep/high? I'm confused by the question. Maybe I could help if I understood better.

You can use buttercream to decorate it if you wish. I use 6 ounces of semisweet chocolate melted and mixed with 1/2 cup sour cream. It spreads well and when it is cool it firms up enough to even pipe with it. You could also use chocolate ganche. Either one will cover well and you could add extra details with either buttercream or fondant. Both will work out well. Good Luck, sounds yummy!

I would bake it for less time. My 6" cheesecake recipe says to bake for 35 minutes. But you will need more time if your layers are deeper. I would keep an eye on it at around 30 minutes.

On my website I have 2 cheesecakes. One decorated and one covered in fresh fruit. They are beside each other. The decorated one is dark chocolate with pink piping and drop flowers in the shape of a heart, and it says Love in the center of the heart. I first decorated in with the melted chocolate and sour cream, then added buttercream details. All photos are on the bottom of the first page. Just click to enlarge.

Hope that helped.

I only put a crust on the bottom layer.

I don't have a facebook page and at this time I don't think I want one.

Good Luck with your cake, I'm sure it will be great.
