Comments
At Christmas time, I melt down York Peppermint Candies and "frost".. glaze is more like it, the cheesecake and then place Andes Mints in a pattern on top around the edges so everyone gets one with a slice. I use a red and a green decorating tube and make a mint flavored poinsetta in the middle. Lucious Christmas presentation.

At Easter, you might want to decorate with Yellow and Pale Orange Flowers in the middle and decorate the edges with candied lemon and orange slices.
