  • Fill piping bags with cheesecake mixture and whipped cream. Or just use a spoon to fill the glasses. I love these disposable piping bags that come with a tip. If the cheesecake doesn’t fit through the tip, just cut the end off, just above the tip.

Where to Buy Individual Serving Glasses:

I use these 5 oz juice glasses to make individual servings but any small glass or bowl will work. If I’m making them for crowd, I like to get the small plastic party glasses that are disposable.
