About this recipe: This is a real showstopper! A very impressive looking dessert which just requires a bit of time; other than that, it's very easy. I've been very generous with the timings because you really can't rush doing the three layers, and while you could get away with chilling the cooked cheesecake for about 4 to 5 hours, overnight is better. I used strawberries for the top fruit layer, but any fruit could be used. Enjoy! xx
Definitely one to make the day before you need it! Let it rest overnight in the fridge in the cake tin and decorate it when you're ready to serve.
Don't be put off by the 13 steps to make this. I've broken it down into stages so you can see that you need time and patience rather than technical skills.
