Introduction: How to Fix a Cracked Cheesecake

This Instructable will show you how to fix a crack in your cheesecake using hot water and an offset spatula.

Step 1: Cold Cheesecake

Start with a cold cheesecake.

Step 2: Push It Together

Push the crack together using your fingers. If it's a deep crack, push a little harder and from further away from the crack.  If the cake sticks to your fingers, wet them with warm water.

Step 3: Sealing the Crack

Dip a small offset spatula into hot water.  Use the spatula to smooth over the top of the cheesecake as seen on the left side of the cake in this picture.

Step 4: Finished!

Smooth over either the cracks or the whole cake as needed.  The top will be slightly lighter where the inside of the cake was pulled over the top.  A topping will cover this.
