My client wants me to make a baby shower cake incorporating cheesecake. Any ideas? I thought a cheesecake filling would be yummy, but then I don't know what kind of cake to make with it and frosting. I'm stuck. Help!
I use cheesecake filling when I make strawberry cake, with sliced strawberries on top of the filling, with vanilla smbc frosting.
I baked a cheesecake in my cake pan (with parchment paper in the bottom) and placed it right in the middle of my cake as a filling with a little ganache on both sides
playingwithsugar, how do you make a cheesecake fillling. Sounds delicious.tia
I just use a no-bake cheesecake recipe, then let it set for a while. When it thickens to spreading consistency, I apply to the layer. Chill when finished.
In a pinch, I have also used the filling from a Jello No-Bake Cheesecake. It sets up faster.
Here's the no-bake cheesecake recipe I use - just omit the crust.
NO - BAKE CHEESECAKE
1 (8 oz.) pkg. softened cream cheese
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed milk
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. sour cream
1 lg. graham cracker crust
In medium size bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add Eagle Brand milk, stir in lemon juice and sour cream; blend ingredients well. Chill 20 minutes then fill pie crust. Chill 2 hours and garnish with your favorite fruit topping. May be covered and frozen (thaw 45 minutes).
