You know, I like to search for some crazy phrases every now & again, but usually I don’t get much back on my search. So, when I typed in “Tie-Dye Dessert”, you can imagine my surprise when I found this Tie-Dyed Red Velvet Cheesecake Recipe from Walt Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
This Tie-Dyed Red Velvet Cheesecake Recipe is by far the most fun & creative dessert recipe yet for March. I’m very excited about trying this one out this weekend. Not only is this a very colorful recipe, but it’s also cheesecake, so where can you go wrong with that?! Enjoy!
Ingredients for Red Velvet Crust:
- 1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (or white cake mix with red food coloring), prepared according to box directions.
What’s Next on That Crust:
Pour 1/2 of cake mix into a greased 9-inch springform pan and bake according to the directions on the box for a 9-inch layer cake. Discard extra batter.
Allow cake layer to cool completely in the pan. Set aside.
Ingredients for Cheesecake:
- 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- Food coloring
What’s Next on That Cheesecake:
Go ahead & preheat your oven to 325 F or 162 C.
In a large bowl- beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and almond extract until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add in sour cream.
Divide mixture into 5 small bowls and add the following colors to each one: pink, yellow, blue, green and purple. Pour batters onto cake base in the 9-inch springform pan. Do not swirl too much, so the colors will be clearly visible.
Bake for 35 minutes, until the center is just about set when you jiggle the pan.
Allow to cool completely and refrigerate before serving.
Run a knife the cake to release it before removing sides of pan. And that’s all, folks!
