  3. Press them firmly using your hands. Set aside while we make our cheese mixture
To make our Cheese Cake mixture
  1. Preheat oven to 150C or 130C fan-forced (I recommend the normal bake instead of fan mode as for cheesecake, we do not want to promote browning and rising.)
  2. Cream cream cheese until smooth on medium low. (You don't want to cream until fluffy as it will rise and crack)
  3. Add in sugar and mix on low until combined.
  4. Add in vanilla extract and beaten egg and mix until well blended.
  5. Add in melted butter and flour. Mix until well combined.
  6. Transfer into your cupcake pan with base. Drop the pan a few times to raise the air bubbles.
  7. Bake it in the oven for about 18 to 22 minutes.
  8. Let it cool completely and put it in the fridge to further cooling.
  9. Remove the paper liners and drizzle melted chocolate over using a piping bag. Top up with half strawberry.
