Well, guess what. I am here to tell you that all hope is not lost. You do not fail as a food blogger, and you can still make this baby go viral. Here's what you do.

How to Repair a Cracked Cheesecake

Step 1: This is the very most important step. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. The first thing you need to do to fix a cracked cheesecake is this: CALM THE EFF DOWN. 

Step 2: Are you still panicking? Repeat step 1. 

Step 3: Now that you are calm, run a knife under hot water for about 20 seconds. Make sure it gets nice and warm.

Step 4: Dry off the knife, and use it to manipulate the cheesecake back into a non-cracked form.

Step 5: You may be panicking here because your cheesecake doesn't look beautiful, dammit! DO NOT PANIC. PERFORM STEP ONE AGAIN IF NEEDED. Then proceed.

Step 6: Put something on top of the mangly cheesecake. I suggest chocolate, but if you insist on health food, fruit is fine. Seriously! How boring is cheesecake without a topping? They not only beautify but increase the deliciousness of your cheesecake. Everybody wins. Nobody loses. Nobody who tastes it will sneer at you and call you anything less than Martha Stewart when they have this in their mouth.

Look at that! Your cheesecake is beautiful and delicious. Nobody is going to look at this thing and say "that looks like a cracked and imperfect cheesecake." No sir. They are going to stuff their mouths with the cheesecake that only you in your heart know is a pinterest lie. 


Enjoy something sweet today, and without crazy worry or anxiety!
