I would say wait and see how the tester comes out.  I personally say that if it’s what you two like that most people probably wouldn’t have a problem with the frosting (I will mention that I do love all kinds of chocolate).

Well honestly I don’t put frosting on my cheesecake. I like a little chocolate dripple and strawberries or something.

I think your topping idea is awesome though! I’d love that. Soo..maybe you  can have her make a little test cheesecake with the chocolate to see how you feel, but personally I like the plain cheesecake and topping bar way more.

Hmmmm, I dont think I have ever had frosting on a cheesecake. I personally dont like white chocolate and would be much more excited if I could put my own toppings on (!!!)

Its your wedding cake and I think if you just tell her that you really had your heart set on a “topping bar” then she will understand.

PS: that sound amazing, I wish I was coming

Frosting doesn’t really go with cheesecake in my opinion…so I would definitely prefer the topping bar over the frosting.

I’d go for a white chocolate drizzled on – like they do at fancy restaurants. Except I don’t really like white chocolate. I like the topping options – preferably fruit and chocolate sauce.

Why not have two cakes; one with frosting and one without???

That might make her happy.

Personally,  I wouldn’t like frosting on the cheesecake, but I usually pick the frosting off of  cake anyway.

I’ve never had frosting on cheesecake and I’ve had a LOT of cheesecake. I think frosting on cheesecake would just make it too sweet and if I was a guest, I’d spend a lot of time peeling it off. I prefer the toppings bar.

I also just googled for cheesecake with frosting and didn’t see any with white chocolate that came up. I did see a creamcheese frosting which I think would make it too cheesy. I know the cheesecake factory puts whipped cream on the side. Maybe that could be an option?

I think that it is good you told her how you felt…maybe have a huuuge bowl of white chocolate at the topping bar? 🙂 good luck!

What about a white chocolate (or chocolate) ganache as a compromise? Kind of like this:

I like the idea of the topping bar.. that way people can put what they want with it. You could have different syrups and things like oreos, m&m’s, fruit, etc!

I have had cheesecake with a white chocolate mousse just on the top, and it is delish.  It is a nice texture combination, too. Airy mousse, dense cheesecake.  Still goes well with the topping bar.
