Do you think I can freeze the No-Bake Lemon Mascarpone Cheesecake (from the August issue) for one week?

I haven't seen the recipe so don't know what the ingredients are but my inclination would be to say probably not.

I do love it when recipes tell you clearly whether something can be made ahead or can be frozen, etc.  Those old Robin Hood booklets were so great for that - every recipe had ratings for ease and also made it clear if something could be frozen or not (some recipes would say "freeze before icing" - certain cookies, cakes, cupcakes, etc.)

Freeze until top is firm to the touch, about 30 min. Spread remaining lemon curd over the top of the cheesecake and freeze for 6 hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour before serving.

I always try to make things as close to the time as I'm going to eat them, but if you can't make it closer to the time, then at a guess I'd think you'd just keep it in the freezer for a week, rather than overnight.

if it is this recipe- so a week shouldn't hurt it.

clearly it can and should be frozen so - DUH - yes.  After it is well frozen, wrap it well if you want to keep it for a week or longer.
