  5. Jessie R Author says:

    Hi! Does the frosting “set” totally? As in can I frost the cheesecake a day before a party or does it need to be done 30 minutes prior to serving? Also I’ve only got a 9 inch spring form pan. Do you have any suggestions for changing the pan size? I don’t know what the “rule of 3” is that you mentioned in a previous comment.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Jessie.

      You can keep the cake in the fridge for one day without any problems; and you can use the same quantities from the recipe.
