A cheesecake bar is the perfect way to let guests personalize their desserts. Simply head to the store or your favourite bakery, pick up some cheesecakes, set out these topping suggestions, and let your guests pick and choose.
While all these toppings pair perfectly with traditional “plain” cheesecake, let your creativity go wild and grab a variety of cheesecakes to share!
Set up the Bar
Cover a large banquet table with your favourite tablecloth to set the scene. Then, set out 2-3 cheesecakes (depending on the size of your event) on cake stands to give you some more room on the table for toppings. Arrange small decorative bowls of toppings around the cheesecakes with serving spoons and labels.
