I made a cheesecake this morning only to discover afterwards that the friends coming for dinner had to cancel. How long will it keep in the fridge?

Ingredients - cream cheese, full fat cream, icing sugar, vanilla pod seeds and the base is biscuits/butter. I planned to decorate with fruit, but I haven't done that yet.

I've got some other friends coming over Friday night - will it keep until then? It's way too big for me, DH and 1 DC to get through on our own!!!!

In my house about 20 minutes! grin

I would have thought it would be fine for Friday.

they get better if you keep them! Somehow I forgot I had made a cheesecake, had put it in the fridge to chill till next day, then completely forgot about it

they get very dense, but lose that slight cream cheese clag texture.

Soooo I always make mine at least two days in advance!

Obv, keep it well wrapped to stop tainting!.

Good news, thank you all! What's the best way to wrap it? It's currently chilling in the fridge in a baking time (recipe advised chilling overnight) - should I just cover that or take it out to wrap it?
