  6. Hi DG, under the cheese cream, the fresh cream and whipped cream to be added in together? Or is that whipped cream mentioned for the top part of the cream?


  7. Hi NitNat,

    For the cheese cream, all the cream will be added in together. I remembered I used all whipped cream instead of half fresh cream+half whipped cream.

    I refrased the sentences :) I used the cream cheese mixture for the top part as well.
    Happy Baking!
