Decorated Pumpkin Cheesecake

Decorated Pumpkin Cheesecake (tutorial with step by step photos) - Decorating technique is easier than you might think! Colour some of the batter and pipe away!

For the cheesecake layer I used the same recipe as her from Tyler Florence except I made an Oreo cookie crust instead of the classic crust made of graham crackers. Also, note that I adjusted the ingredients from the original recipe since I used a slightly bigger pan.  Read More
