The Seasonal Cakes You Can Make Ahead of Time
Cheesecake is always a crowd-pleaser, but it's a chef-pleaser, too, since it tastes even better after spending a night in the fridge. To make these beauties, you can use any kind of cookie crumbs, using anything from graham crackers to Nilla Wafers. The filling is just cream cheese, sugar, eggs, cream, spices and a few spoons of maple syrup. Make them in cupcake wrappers for easy serving.
