I don't have a slow cooker, can this recipe be made in the oven?

Where's the ginger in the filling? If the optional crystallized ginger topping isn't used then it's not Ginger-Orange Cheesecake. I looked through many recipes for Ginger-Orange Cheesecake. Some, the ginger was supplied by a ginger snap crust. Others had 16 oz light cream cheese with 1/2 tsp grated ginger OR 8 oz. light cream cheese with 3T fresh ginger, grated. You can guage the amount you want for spiciness.
