Let us keep your cheesecake cool when travelling.
When travelling with your family in Australia in
your car, it is natural to want to bring a few cheesecakes with you. However,
it is important to note that cheesecake is a very soft and tender type of
dessert that cannot be stored at room temperature or in any situation of
elevated temperatures because it will spoil quickly, lose its quality, and most
likely cause an upset stomach later on during the trip.
Therefore, it is recommended to keep your
delicious cheesecake at the ideal temperature range of 2°C to 4°C.
Temperature-controlled storage slows the growth of bacteria, which is essential
for maintaining the freshness and quality of the cheesecake.
Your cheesecake should be able to stay good for as
much as 5 days in refrigerated storage.
So let’s just avoid your cheesecake going off by
outfitting your vehicle with a temperature-controllable Portable cooler.
If you’re planning to travel with cheesecake,
portable coolers with temperature control can keep your dessert fresh for as
long as you keep them powered. These coolers are designed to plug into the
12-volt outlets found in most modern vehicles, making them a convenient option
for road trips. They are also ideal for
camping trips, but you will need extra battery power and, if you are camping
for an extended period of time, consider solar backup.

brands and models of car refrigerators or car eskies with varying features,
sizes, and prices. Below are a few

Have you ever wondered about what airlines
If you are thinking about flying commercially
around Europe, I’m sure your first concern is to make sure they will be serving
cheesecake at some point. Although I
imagine in-flight menus change seasonally, so it’s probably never going to be easy
to work out which airlines are cheesecake friendly and which are not but I’ll
give it a go for us:
Here are the cheesecake serving airlines that
I could find:
Lines: Delta offers mini-assorted cheesecakes therefore
making them a fantastic Airline.
Canada: Their international business class cabin
features meals that joyfully end with desserts such as Cheesecake. Thank you Canada, I salute you.
Airways: British Airways’ first class cabin serves a
variety of desserts, including cheesecake.
Great job indeed.
France: On the Air France premier class flights from the
U.S. and Canada, you can be treated to dishes created by famous French Chef
Daniel Boulud, you will have the most beautiful main meal imaginable and then
you’ll be able to enjoy a slice of Air France Cheesecake.
