How to create a swirl effect on a cheesecake?
(Possibly a strange question, but please humour me...)
I'm planning to make a white chocolate cheesecake and have enough raspberries to make some kind of raspberry sauce to drizzle over the top.
My question is, how to create a pretty swirl effect on the top of it? (See pictures).
Am I better off just drizzling? Rather than trying to swirl it in and making a mess?
Or should I forget sauce altogether and just put the fresh raspberries on top?
All advice gratefully received!
those decorative swirls are typically achieved by pouring the sauce onto the cake in lines/rows, and then VERY gently "dragging" the tip of a knife through to "pull"/distribute the sauce into a pattern.
I hope I am not too late.
Your best bet would be to add a layer of cream on top then swirl the sauce using a cocktail stick or the back of a teaspoon. I have squinted at that second picture - and I can just see a layer on top of the original cake.
