    Hello Everyone,
     
    Happy New Year 2014!
     
    I have been making no-bake cheesecakes for years with gelatine as my setting agent.   However, in this new job of mine, my boss would like me to make my no-bake cheesecakes without gelatine.  I have tried using recipes with cream cheese, condensed milk and whipped cream. However, it does not set firmly like how it does when you use gelatine. 

    Some of the recipes allow the cheesecake to set into a pudding stage but will not firm up.  Hence, once you cut the cheesecake, it does not look nice at the cake display counter such as this recipe:

    Filling:
    250g Philly cream cheese
    395g sweetened condensed milk
    1 tsp peppermint extract
    ½ cup crushed peppermint candy
    2 cup heavy cream (whipped)
    ½ lemon (juice)

    Can anyone please share their experience or help me out on this?  I am frustrated that I am defeated to a no-bake cheesecake.
     
    Thank you.
     
    Best regards,
    jp

    Could you add icing sugar to this? That is in a lot of no-bake cheesebake recipes.
