      Meanwhile, cut tops off the strawberries and place cut side down onto cheesecake THAT IS STILL IN THE SPRINGFORM PAN. Start in center and spiral out to edges. (Note: If you have a store bought cheesecake, you can carefully wrap parchment paper then plastic wrap around it to create a 'wall' above the cheesecake to hold the gel in til firmed up).

      4.5 stars, due to personal preference for a less jelled topping, however, I believe that coating every strawberry and the entire cheesecake top helped to preserve the strawberries longer than would have been possible otherwise with more exposure to air. DH loved this just the way it was. My strawberries ranged from medium to large, and I would have had better coverage with smaller strawberries (I would avoid jumbo warehouse-club strawberries). The jelled topping is less messy than an oozing topping, making it a good choice for potlucks, and it stored well in the refrigerator. I used this on top of 2Bleu's Absolutely the Best New York Cheesecake (Gluten-Free) #244193 as recommended by the chef. Thank you for sharing this recipe, 2Bleu! Made for Please Review My Recipe.

      I used Inge 1505's recipe for German Fruit Cake Bottom topping with pudding, strawberries and your glaze making an absolutely beautiful and festive presentation. For its simplicity this is pure genious.
