Disney Recipe – Tye-Dyed Cheesecake

If you’re looking for something different and are tired of the same old cheesecake recipe then you have to try this Tye-Dyed Cheesecake. A few years ago my wife and I were staying at Disney’s Pop Century for the first time and one late night we found this very odd looking cake. The colors on the cake were so cool that I had to try it. Well, this isn’t the same cheesecake your Mom makes because instead of a graham cracker crust they used a Red Velvet Cake for the bottom of the cheesecake! It was spectacular looking and tasting so go ahead and give this recipe a try.

Red Velvet Cake Ingredients:
1/4 cup Butter (softened)
3/4 cups Sugar
1 Egg
1 tablespoons Cocoa
1 ounces Red Food Coloring
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 cups Flour
1/2 tablespoon Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9″ springform pan. Cream together butter, sugar and eggs. Make a paste of cocoa and food coloring. Add the paste to the creamed mixture. Mix salt and vanilla in buttermilk and add alternately with the flour. Mix baking soda and vinegar separately, add last, folding in. Do not beat after adding baking soda mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool cake in pan. Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Disney Pop Century
