What is your favourite cheesecake topping?

I am catering a small house wedding this Saturday. The couple have both been married before and are just having about 40 people so they didn't want the traditional wedding cake or cupcakes. I suggested cheesecake and they were really excited.

So, I am making large New York Cheescakes and toppings on the side. I am doing a berry sauce, chocolate, caramel pecan and for something different strawberries in brown sugar and balsamic vinegar.

I was wondering what other people's favourite toppings are and that maybe I should change or add to the list.

The simple, ubiquitous blueberry. Don't leave home without it!

Hmmm, seems as I was going for the gourmet and it is the simple that people want!

Yes, Andy it is a simple New York Cheesecake - just has a creme fraiche layer baked on top.

But keep them coming, these ideas are great!

I'm odd.. I like mine plain. I love the taste of cheese cake just as it is.
