I have 6 of the tear-drop shape ring, may I know this recipe can yield how many cheesecake of this size?

Alice,

this recipe yields about 12 nos. You can either buy more of the tear drop cake ring or use any other petite cake rings.

BTW, where did you buy your tear drop cake rings? Care to share?

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I tried making d cheesecake last night! I replaced the gelatine mixture with 3 tsp of agar agar powder in 100g of boiling water and reduced the whipping cream by 25% and it worked just nice. Thanks ALOT! For those who can't take gelatine, hope this is a piece of useful info.
