2 easy Christmas cheesecake decorating ideas

Once your Christmas cheesecake from a box is made at home and chilling away it’s time to get creative with it for the holidays.

  1. Adding ornaments is such a fun Christmas cheesecake idea for making a festive dessert to serve anywhere.

You can use the bubble method to create your own ornaments at home like we used for creating these candy balloons to top a birthday cake. Or go the easy route, since we are already making our Christmas Cheesecake dessert easy peasy and grab colorful ornaments from the store.

Since these won’t come as food safe off the shelf, we add a small layer of plastic wrap to the bottom of each. It’s not noticeable to the eye and ensures your cute Christmas cheesecake decorations are as safe as they are fun!

2. The second option is to create Christmas cheesecake cookies with your finished cake.

Use your favorite set of cookie cutters to create these fun Christmas cheesecake cookies! Simple press the cutter down into a fully chilled cheesecake and remove with a cake server from the bottom. The result is a cookie that tastes like a cheesecake – which is just about the best thing I can imagine for our Christmas baking fun.
