    Bummer - at least it will still taste good. I just searched for cheese cake topping and this came up, perhaps one of these will work for you

    You can seal the crack with hot water and an offset spatula:

    This is the topping I used in this recipe: Blueberry Cheesecake With a Hint of Lime

    3/4 cup blueberry preserves (preferably Smuckers spreadable fruit)
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

    Combine preserves, cornstarch and lime juice in a small saucepan.
    Cook over low heat until bubbly and thickened, 7-10 minutes.
    Let cool slightly and spread over top of cheesecake.
    Chill at least one hour before serving.

    You could probably use other flavors of preserves. Spreadable fruit is the best kind.

    Good morning to you chef. I am sure you will do all right with your cheesecake covering.
    If you like I can tell you how to avoid "CHESSECAKE CRACKS"
    Just post back with your mixing technique of your ingredients & baking technique. Cracks are avoidable.

    Good luck in your baking & enjoy the rest of the day.
