Cheesecake is a sweet family favorite dessert that consists of one or more layers of delight. The main, which is also the thickest layer has a mixture of soft, fresh cheese, eggs, and sugar.

“If there is a bottom layer, it often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies (or digestive biscuits), graham crackers, pastry, or sometimes sponge cake.[1] It may be baked or unbaked (usually refrigerated).”

A cheesecake, however, doesn’t limit one in adding flavors to it. You can sweeten it however you like, you can also add your own ingredients to it, you may add other sweet ingredients and even fruits.

As far as the topping is concerned, you can be as creative as possible. Remember that any dish will become more appetizing if it is presented well, wouldn’t you agree?
