    oh boy. i just took that puppy out of the fridge so that I can add the fudge topping. It so so firm. I can't wait to cut into it, but i have to wait until we sing happy birthday at work! I will pretend to take pictures of the birthday party later, all the while taking pictures of the cheesecake in all it's glory. haha. I'll post them later. Thanks for this recipe! So far so good.
