Bowl of Cornflakes No-Bake Cheesecake (Easy, Easy, Easy!)

If you're like me, you're always trying to find ways to eat cake for breakfast without incurring people's pesky judgements. 

I like inventing desserts but I also like solving problems, so I've created a cake that'll give you a darn good cover for your morning cake consumption. 

At the bottom of the bowl, there's a crunchy and sweet cornflake base. Covering that, you have a crazy creamy and rich no-bake cheesecake and a handful of cornflakes sprinkled on top for good measure. 

It's a great treat for a brekkie-themed party or a surprise for someone that's notorious for their cereal obsession.

3. Place your big spoon in the bowl, pushing the tip of the spoon into the centre of the base a little bit so it stays put
