When using a springform pan be sure it is non-stick so that the cheese cake separates easily from the walls when baked.

Use a blunt knife to run around the edge of the cake. This ensures there is no part that sticks to the walls of the pan, before the walls are removed.

Before pouring in the cheese cake batter, just check that the springform lever is firmly in place and that the bottom is also firmly set.

There are no short cuts to decorating the cake, just make certain the cheese cake is fully cooled before applying the topping.
