  • Step 5:

    Cheesecake Filling: Beat the cream until thick peaks appear, set aside.

  • Step 6:

    Cheesecake Filling: In a small pot add the milk and sprinkle the gelatine on top, let stand one minute, then place the pot on low heat and heat just until the gelatine has dissolved, stirring often (1-2 minutes), do not boil, then immediately remove from heat.

    Wildberry Topping: In a medium pot mix together the berries, sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, water and lemon juice, bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer until desired thickness. Pour into a bowl, let cool then refrigerate for at least a few hours. The filling will thicken as it cools.
