Now there is no need to worry if you don’t have a football shaped bowl like this. If you have a small, oval shaped bowl, you could use it in the same way. Or, you could simply shape the cheesecake ball using your hands once it has properly chilled, as it is very easy to manipulate.
Fill with the chilled batter then cover and return to fridge to chill for one more hour. If you are making the football shape by hand, use a large piece of plastic wrap to help form into a football shape first.
