Martha Stewart's Spiderweb Cheesecake: A hack

Spiderweb CheesecakeWho doesn't love a good cooking shortcut, especially when it comes to entertaining? Angela's will make you the most popular kid at the Halloween party:

I'm a busy mom who loves to entertain, but I don't have a ton of time! Martha Stewart has an awesome recipe for spiderweb cheesecake, but I thought it took too long. I bought a pumpkin cheesecake (via Sam's Club freezer section) and did the web myself (see my post at nofussfabulous.com). It was a hack that got me time to do my hair and hang out with the adults!

Beautiful. What's your favorite cooking shortcut for guests?
