While I don’t have a vivid recollection of baking my first cheesecake, I do recall, in my early days of baking professionally, how overwhelmed I felt when I had to make 12 cheesecakes at once for a banquet event. The recipe called for something like 6 kg of cream cheese and 36 eggs! Even when making big batches of cheesecake, and using large scale professional equipment, the recipe and the challenges are still the same: how to make sure you have a creamy cheesecake with no cracking!
