Red Velvet Cheesecake
This cake boasts velvety layers encasing easy no-bake white chocolate cheesecake filling. Cream cheese frosting and a garnish of festive red crumbs finish the look.
Why This Recipe Works
This inventive cake combines two classic desserts: red velvet cake and cheesecake. To provide stability while assembling the cake, we built it in a springform pan. To ensure an easy release from the pan, we refrigerated the assembled cake in the pan before unmolding it. A mix of melted white chocolate and gelatin gave structure to the cheesecake, and we crumbled a part of each red velvet cake round to use as decoration on the side of the triple-decker cake. For an easy frosting, we relied on a simple buttercream with a bit of cream cheese thrown in to unite all the layers.
