OH MY MY MY!!
This is where it GETS VERY FUN & VERY TASTY!
How To Make a Water Bath-Placing water in the oven along with your cheese cakes will help keep it moist which can help prevent cracks. To add a water bath simply fill a shallow pan with water and place it on the oven rack right below your cheesecake. Some people actually prefer placing their pan of cheesecake right into the water. I had a bad experience with the water seeping into my spring form pan and ever since then I’ve been to chicken to try it that way again. This way works just as good for me.
How to Slice a Cheesecake- To get a perfect, neatly cut cheesecake dip your knife into a glass of hot water and wipe off before making each cut. The first piece is usually the hardest to remove. Run an offset spatual underneath the slice to easily lift it up and remove.
How to Garnish a Cheesecake– Garnishing a cheesecake can be the most exciting part about making a cheesecake. Garnishes can make even the plainest cheesecakes look absolutely breathtaking. I recommend garnishing each slice individually on the plate right when you are about to serve it. Not only will this make cutting it easier but it will ensure that each slice looks equally fresh and beautiful.
