This vegan cheesecake tastes wonderful just as it is without any decoration, but you may wish to arrange halved strawberries or other fruits around the rim and sprinkle chopped nuts in the center.

That photograph is gorgeous. How did you make the cheesecake with rings?

While I'm not a fan of "not cheesecake" this worked for my guests. As for the design...split your batter before adding your flavor so you end up with vanilla and ... Pour one cup into the pan, follow it with opposite color and repeat till you are out of batter. I crumbed the sides-it really polishes it off.

As a cheese fiend and dairy lover, I don't normally make vegan desserts unless it's a special request. This one is so beautiful, it's hard for anyone to resist. Nice job. (I did use butter instead of margarine in the crust, and added cocoa powder, a pinch of salt and about a tablespoon of confectioners'sugar when grinding the almonds.) I used almond milk instead of soy and almond oil instead of sunflower seed. Served it with warm chocolate ganache.
