    By pie crust, do you mean like real pie crust as opposed to cracker crumb crust? I cannot imagine cheesecake, especially individual servings, without a crust. Otherwise, I support it. I have had minicheesecakes done in cupcake liners and they were great. I also support most non-traditional dessert options because I love most desserts in general haha.

    As long as they can stay refrigerated up until the reception, I think it’s a fab idea!

    No idea if this is do-able or not for a wedding, but I’ve made homemade cheesecake in cupcake wrappers before (graham cracker crust or oreo crust) and I’ve put them in the freezer to harden a little bit more than usual.  It makes it really easy to take the wrapper off to eat it, and it keeps everything together really well.  Be sure to pack down the crust well though – it minimizes crumbs going everywhere 🙂

    My boo bear makes little cheese cake cupcakes all the time from a jello kit and they actually are so good.. he then spoons some straweries and stuff over each one and then refridgerates them for a while…

    I would imagine you could just make up your own graham cracker crust with graham crackers sugar and butter

    Mini cheesecakes are SUPER easy to make, and they are very easy to transport so I would think it would be a definite possibility for a DIY project.

    That said, I think you really should have a crust. They are super to easy to make (I usually just crush up graham crackers or shortbread cookies, mix with melted butter, press into muffin tin pans and cook for 5min before spooning in the cheesecake filling). If you fill the tins with cupcake wrappers you won’t have to worry about the crust crumbling or falling all over the place.

    Mini cheesecakes usually dimple in the center which also makes them super easy to decorate with a little jam or fruit.

    Yes!  You can just use vanilla wafers as the “crust” for your cupcake cheesecakes.  That’s what my family does, and they are delicious!!  I say go for it!

    Ditto what bunnylovesbear said! My mom uses Nilla Wafers as the crust. I don’t have her recipe here, but just google “cheesecake cupcakes nilla wafers” and a bunch of recipes come up.

    I say it’s a good idea! We are also doing a wedding cheesecake! I’m with Amarylis, though. I’ve never seen cheesecake w/o a crust. That could get messy.

    definitely cheesecake cupcakes with the vanilla wafers! or another option if you want to make an actual cupcake and then just use cheesecake filling in the middle of it. i just made cupcakes like that recently and it was a huge hit.
