Cheesecakemama, you've definitely lived up to your name! This cheesecake is lighter than the traditional ones I've had but even tastier. I do prefer a smooth as opposed to crumbly cheesecake, since it tends to be less dense. I followed Cheesecakemama's review about using two ready-made crusts since I didn't have a spring-form pan at the time. I did add an extra bit of sour cream and an additional egg because I thought it would need it; it didn't because it rose quite a bit... Seems our packages of sour cream and cream cheese are slightly bigger than yours... I didn't take this into account and they did indeed crack, deeply... Oh, I layered the cake as follows: crust, melted semi-sweet chocolate with cream and melted caramels with cream to hide the cracks. Caramel did slide about the cake; I think I will bake it on next time or find a way to make it stay in place. I will definitely make this again as possibilities are endless! Thank you.
