DH just got back with the Christmas food shop, and he's bought low fat mascarpone instead of regular for the cheese cake. Will it work, or will it be too runny to set? I don't fancy going back into the supermarket madness to exchange it, but don't want to risk runny cheesecake on Christmas Day either!

I would say the opposite sorry. I've never found that low fat versions of anything work in cooking. You need the fat molecules to bind things.

It should be ok, if it looks a bit sloppy add some more icing sugar. I have had some turn out ok and others that havent but I just chucked it in the freezer and serve it very cold almost frozen and no one commented. Although that maybe down to my terrifying glare across the table when serving the half frozen cheesecake fgrin
