    Cheesecake internal temp

    Just wondering what is the REAL temperature for baking a cheesecake? I am confused already. For me, my ideal temperature for a cheesecake is 160 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.  My cheesecake turns out be so tasting. My family couldn't resist it.

    What are you listening to these days?

    I borrowed Paul Towndrow's new CD from my brother in-law. I have long been a fan after hearing him at a small town Cumbrian venue.

    Freezing pre-made cakes

    The answer is yes, you can actually bake cake in advance and keep it refrigerate before decorating. You can wrap the cakes with a very good  plastic wrap then you freeze them.
