No Bake Whipped Cream Cheesecake

I like free choice week in the heavenly cake bakers group. It means I get to blog about something I baked weeks and weeks ago. 😉 I’m a bit short on time tonight, and I’m already late with this post, so I’m going to let the pictures do the talking again.

I have to admit, for a ‘no bake’ cheesecake, this was an awful lot of work, and even more dirty dishes. Was it worth it? In my opinion, absolutely. I think this cheesecake supplants the “Cordon Rose” cheesecake recipe from The Cake Bible as my favourite. The texture is so unbelievably light and fluffy. It’s a little bit of a challenge to serve because of that, but oh so worth it. Unsurprisingly, given that it has the word “cheesecake” in the title, Jay really enjoyed it too. I offered to make it for him for his birthday, but we were visiting my brother in law at the time, and it turned out that he’d made a different no-bake cheesecake before we got there. It was quite tasty in its own right, and if I want something quick and easy, I’ll definitely be calling and asking for his recipe. No offence to my big brother, but when it comes to taste, Rose’s recipe wins hands-down.

  1. I’m glad you made this No Bake cheesecake. I’ve been wondering and wondering about it. After reading your post I’ll give it a try next time I make cheesecake.
