Cheesecake fans, you’re in for a treat. I am so excited to introduce you to QVC’s dessert of the month, Junior’s Strawberry Christmas Swirl Cheesecake. Picture a New York-style cheesecake swirled with homemade strawberry puree and adorned with festive red and green chips… all sitting on a layer of luscious red velvet cake! Today I’ll be sharing tips on how to serve Junior’s Strawberry Cheesecake at your next holiday entertaining event.
This cheesecake alone is a work of art. I kept my presentation simple to keep this glorious cheesecake at the center of attention. It makes quite the conversation piece! I presented the cheesecake on a cake stand, then sliced a piece and placed it on a matching plate. I served the slice with a fork to make it look more inviting to my guests. It’s always awkward when you’re at a party and you're waiting for that "green light" of approval to start in on dessert. I wanted to make sure my guests knew they could dig right in!
To truly capture the winter mood, I picked a couple tree branches which looked similar to a pine tree. I added an assortment of nuts such as chestnuts and walnuts and mixed in with a few ornaments. Doesn’t this look delicious?
If you have never ordered a dessert from QVC, you may be wondering how a cheesecake shipped all the way from New York can successfully arrive at your doorstep. Once your order is received, the cheesecake is packed frozen in a box with Styrofoam and dry ice, and is then factory-sealed to ensure freshness. The cheesecake will be delivered within 2 days of shipping. Once your cheesecake arrives, you can either stick it directly in your freezer until company arrives or set it out at room temperature for a few hours to be ready to serve. From my own personal experience of ordering several Junior’s cheesecakes amongst many other desserts from QVC, I can assure you that your cheesecake will arrive in perfect condition!
