- Take out the cupcake tray from inside the refrigerator and pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the biscuit base.
- Bake for 13-15 mins at 180 degrees Celsius until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- For the frosting, combine egg whites with sugar and vanilla essence and whisk till soft peaks form.
