    3. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Soak the gelatin in cold water. Whip the cream with 20 g of icing sugar until it turns stiff, leaving two tablespoons aside. In a bowl, put the spreadable cheese with the remaining icing sugar and beat with a whisk.
    4. Heat the two tablespoons of cream, squeeze the previously soaked gelatine, dissolve it in the cream, pour it into the cream cheese, and continue stirring until the mixture is smooth and without lumps.
    5. Add the whipped cream and mix gently from bottom to top.
    6. Take the puffed rice base and pour the mixture, leveling it well. Leave everything to rest in the fridge for 2 hours.
    7. When it’s time to serve our cheesecake, remove the side edges with a wet knife and open the zipper. Sprinkle the cream with cinnamon and arrange it on a serving dish.
