Note : Removing the cheesecake from the pan is a bit tricky and a tedious job if you have no right equipment’s.

DSC_6434
I went through a challenge while setting and taking it out from the pan as I had no detachable pan. hence i suggest if making the cheese cake for the first time, then i would suggest you to use glasses or bowls,
so that you can just make the layers in them. The mango cheesecake served in individual bowls or glasses, looks pleasing as well as easy to serve.
