  7. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool while you make the frosting.

Cheesecake filling;

  1. Beat cream cheese and vanilla then add powdered sugar. Add the sugar then give it a quick mix and you don’t want the cream cheese to warm up, it needs to remain cold for.
  2. Add in the heavy cream and continue mixing until you get beautiful whipped cheesecake frosting.

Chocolate Frosting: 

  1. In a medium saucepan, placed over medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the cocoa powder and Coca-Cola (or milk) and bring just to a bowl.
  2. Remove from heat and, whisking constantly, slowly add it to the confectioner’s sugar, along with the vanilla extract, until smooth.
  3. Spread a generous amount of the cream cheese over the cake then let it chill in the fridge, remove it and pout the warm chocolate frosting over the cake. Let it cool then slice and serve.
