Although I've made a few cheesecakes in my day, they have always been for family and presentation wasn't such a big deal. I'd just take off the ring of the springform pan and (carefully) slice it right on the bottom metal plate.
Now I'd like to bring one in to work for a party and I can't figure out how one gets the cheesecake off the bottom plate and onto a pretty plate without destroying it. I can't even see how parchment paper would work because although it would help get it off the pan, you can't get the parchment paper off the bottom of the cake.
There must be some basic technique I never learned....could someone please clue me in?
