There are dozens of different recipes out there that can be used to create your own No-bake Cheesecake. But, in order to make it like the real thing, here are some tips on making your cheesecake so delicious, no one would think it wasn’t baked.
1. Make sure to whip your cream cheese. While some people simply mix it around the bowl, actually whipping it would ensure a perfectly creamy texture to your cheesecake.
2. Give your cheesecake enough time to set before adding your toppings. Since most toppings are fruit (fresh or canned), they would be coming complete with their own juices. Chill the mixture for around 45 minutes before placing any toppings to prevent the juices from mixing and messing up the formula.
3. Handle your cheesecake as little as possible before it has set. Too much movement can cause cracks and imperfections to form. Make sure it has completely set before moving it around.
With these three simple tips, you can be sure that your No-bake Cheesecake will come out beautifully.
