Frosting a cheesecake is not particularly an arduous task especially when you take cognizance of the nuances involved.

  • You need to allow the cheesecake to be cooled completely by bringing it to room temperature before you try to frost a cheesecake. The frosting also needs to be cooled appreciably before it can be put on the surface of the cheesecake.

  • Frosting a cheesecake will be comparatively easy once you stir it into a thick pudding like consistency. The texture should be smooth and silky as well.

  • The next step of action while you go about trying to frost a cheesecake is to place a generous dollop of frosting on the center of the cake and gently spin the cake with the aid of a lazy Susan. It is imperative to apply a little pressure on the spatula and hold it still watching the frosting getting plastered all across the cake while it spins around slowly.

  • Some extra amount of the frosting can also be applied around the circumference of the cake which will give it an even appearance. However, remember to frost a cheesecake thoroughly be spreading the frosting to all parts of the cake particularly those which had been missed while the cake had been spinning.


It is also possible to create a scalloped look by moving the spatula up and down at regular intervals as you continue to frost a cheesecake.
