Cheesecake Thawing & Cutting Guide

Tools Needed to Prepare and Serve:

  • A long, non-serrated knife
  • A large plate or cutting board
  • A spatula or server
  • A cheesecake!

Thawing Options:

  • Thaw in refrigerator – Will be ready in 4-5 hours (Recommended) OR
  • Microwave 1 or 2 slices at a time – Will be ready in under 30 seconds

Cutting and Serving Tips:

  • Place the cheesecake on a large plate or cutting board
  • Remove the lid from the pan and run the tip of a spatula between the frozen cheesecake and the side of the pan
  • Push the cheesecake up from the bottom to remove it. Slide the spatula under the cake and lift from the pan.
  • Before the first cut and in between cuts, dip the knife in warm water. Then, clean the knife with a paper towel between cuts.
  • Cut from the center, not all the way across the diameter of the cheesecake
  • After the cuts are complete, slide the spatula in to lift out each piece of cheesecake
  • Store any unused cheesecake in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days
