I only had 1/2 a cup of whipping cream, so I decided I would whip it up and just use it for the mousse instead of saving some for topping it. I don't think I had enough whipping cream for it to whip though- you know, like not enough volume or something. It just wouldn't whip so it was fluffy. It got a little poofy, but not like whipped cream should be. I made the mousse part anyway, but left it on the side. All my friends think I have an gift with cheesecake and they reported to me that this was the best one I have ever made (they decided not to try the raspberry mousse on top). So, even just the plain cheesecake was absolutely brilliant. I used a store bought crust this time, but next time I think I will attempt a homemade chocolate crumb crust.
wow i love this dee
