Desserts with layers, stripes, and multicolored sections have always intimidated me. I’m so not a perfectionist, and these sorts of treats require precision. I’ve finally discovered a tool that makes creating these desserts so easy that you don’t need to be a fancy pastry chef (or a home baking guru) to pull them off: Creo Stax.
In this blog post, you’ll find step-by-step photos of how this magical little gadget works (if you prefer to see it in video format, check it out on Instagram or Facebook). Join me as I make my no-bake mixed berry Oreo cheesecake.
Creo Stax comes with two Stax Molds and I use them both for my cheesecake. First, I put the Oreo crust in the bottom of both Stax Molds (just one shown in the photo below) and chilled it in the freezer for just a few minutes.
Then, I use the included XO Tool to divide the circle into sections. I add different flavors of cheesecake (raspberry, blueberry, and oreo) in a fun pattern.
When I pull out the XO Tool, the sections stay separated!
I rinse the XO Tool off and use it again to fill the second Stax Mold, swapping the locations of blueberry and raspberry cheesecakes. Then, I again remove the XO Tool and freeze both molds overnight. In the morning, I top both cheesecakes with more Oreo crust and use the included Tamper Tool to level them.
Then comes the moment of truth – the stack and slide. The two Stax Molds easily click together. The bottom of each mold has a sliding tray which easily removes. I slide out the bottom of the top mold and use the Tamper Tool to push the top cheesecake down on top of the bottom one.
Next, I place the stacked molds onto a plate, slide out the bottom sliding tray, and use the Tamper Tool to press the stacked cheesecake down onto the plate.
Finally, I easily open the molds to reveal the creation!
I decorate and then dig in!
I adapted the specific recipe that I used for this no-bake cheesecake from Linda at Call Me Cupcake and I’ve included my recipe below. But, I hope more than anything that the Creo Stax tool inspires you to come up with your own unique and stunning creations!
