That's actually what I am doing. The cheesecakes will be on a stand, sort of like a wedding cake and then they will be cut with the toppings all on the side. I forgot the whipping cream....the groom asked for lots of that!

I was wondering what other people's favourite toppings are and that maybe I should change or add to the list.
I prefer mine plain but cherry comes in a close second.

This "strawberries in brown sugar and balsamic vinegar" intrigues me. Would you care to elaborate?

I did it originally over ice cream and it was a big hit so I thought I would experiment with cheesecake and it too was a success (though some people do not like you messing with their strawberries!).

Prepare your fresh strawberries by cleaning and removing the hulls and then slice halve or leave them whole. Put a couple of shakes of good balsamic vinegar over them and a tablespoon or two of sugar (depending on how many you have). Stir it together and let them sit in the fridge for awhile. The juice from the berries and the vinegar meld to make a wonderful "syrup". You can grind some black pepper over as well, but don't get too carried away with it.

I guess you did sort of write that ... can I claim a momentary laps of attention because I was distracted by the thought of cheesecake?

Sorry Wart, I wasn't trying to be snarky. It is this stupid sinus infection and arthritic knee. I was trying to agree that it was a great idea! But alas, yes, cheesecake can affect the sences can't it!

I agree but with a splash of rum mixed in or even rum soaked currents for color and texture.
