thanks for the edit. One observation that I made from your edit is that, reducing the amount of creme will make the cake firmer - less liquid means a more consistent cake. To make things simpler why don't I just ditch the creme all together. What do you think about the purpose of the creme in this recipe? Is it more for taste ? Or is it an agent to soften the Nutella and the Philadelphia cheese mixture?

thanks for the tip. So let me summarize what you are saying from my own understanding - just to make sure I get it right. I should mix (or whisk ?) the Philadelphia cheese with 20 - 30 g of honey and 1/4 table spoon (or did you mean tea spoon) of corn starch. I should put it in more creme. Instead of 400, I should put 450 or 470 depending on the consistency of the mixture.
