1) the cheesecake is not baking or setting up very evenly. Tall edges, sunken areas, etc.. I'm doing these in a convection oven and we're having a hard time finding the right temp/baking time. That said, I've done regular cheesecakes with little problem before so I'm thinking the layers might be the source of the problem.
2) Baking and then slicing into single servings is not doing it for me in terms of presentation. The lines are not coming out clean after slicing. I very much want nice, clean, even, visible layers.
How would you guys approach this little project? Any ideas? Also, what are some of your favorite chocolate garnish ideas for the top?
