Got questions? I’ve got answers!

Pro Tips for baking perfection:

  • Ensure all your wet ingredients are at room temperature for the smoothest cheesecake texture.
  • Use a stand mixer for best results, and avoid over-mixing the batter.
  • Allow the cheesecake to chill completely before decorating or cutting into it.
