    Hi,

    I've just made a lovely chocolate vanilla no bake cheesecake with a strawberry jelly topping but had a disaster removing it from the tin - the biscuit base crumbled and although I used a heated knife some of the sides got spoiled too.

    Is there a method to this?

    I'd use a springform pan or a disposable aluminum one.  With aluminum pan, I'd cut the sides away after cake was cooled.

    Sure. A springform pan. Extra care: buttered wax or parchement paper all around, bottom and sides.

    I hope it's still in the pan.

    Warm the bottom GENTLY and run a knife around the edges.

    Check for metal shavings.  Yep, happens, but not often.  Check anyway.

    Thanks I've tried again using non stick parchment and I've turned the bottom of the springform pan upside down so there isn't a lip - I thought there might be cakeboards that fit inside the springform tin but they all seem a fraction too big - hope I have better luck this time - thanks guys!
