Messy cheesecake

I followed a recipe of a no bake cheesecake from the cheesecake recipe book i bought a couple weeks ago. I made this cheesecake for our halloween party. My first and last no bake cheesecake for me :(
                                           for the base : 2 packs of chocolate biscuits crushed
                                                                75 g butter
                                                                25 g sugar
In the small casserole melt the butter, add the sugar then mix the crushed chocolate biscuits and cook for a very low heat.
               when done, press the mixture in a spring form pan and put it in the fridge
                                          for the cream mixture : 350 g ricotta ( room temp. )
                                                                    350 g mascarpone ( room temp. )
                                                                     1 tbsp rhum
                                                                     3 tbsp café extract
                                                                     1 tsp vanilla extract
                                                                     4 tbsp icing sugar
                                                                 125 g black chocolate ( grated )
In a glass bowl, mix the ricotta+mascarpone using a wooden spoon, while mixing add a spoon of rhum+ coffee extract,+vanilla extract+icing sugar then finely add the grated black chocolates.
Spread the cream mixture over the chocolate base biscuit. Place in the freezer for about 2 hours then transfer in the fridge for 20 minutes. Top with chocolates or dust with icing sugar for decoration.
       Voilà my messy cheesecake! ( sorry for the photo it was taken at night )
It was turn out very thin and flat ( less quantity for the party ) i got broken my cheesecake by falling down ( forgetting to lock the spring form pan ) when its placing/cooling in the freezer, luckily the biscuits are firm so i can able to recuperate some. It mades me a double work to clean my mess in the kitchen. Bad experience! but my messy cheesecake? i can say so real messy and the taste is just OK :)
