    Hi , Doesn't the cheesecake melt if it's kept outside for longer duration?

    Hello. Is the gelatin necessary? I have made may cheesecakes in the past and never used it. Would love to make this one but I dont like the thought of putting gelatin in it. Thank you

    Hi Katie, In this recipe you need to use gelatin, otherwise the cake wont be stable enough.

    This cheesecake looks great! But instead of white chocolate could I add icing sugar?

    I don't think this it will work. You need something that will help the cake stay stable.

    Just made this cheesecake for Easter. The only issue I had was the fact that it was not sweet enough. Coconut cream has no sugar and I wished that I had taken the time to taste the mixture before adding it to the crust because I definitely would have added some sugar. Easy to make but definitely on the expensive side.
