Treats: Red Velvet Cheesecake

14 Jun

Lately I’ve been infatuated with Red Velvet cake – and it has manifested itself in cupcakes, cakes, ice cream, and other treats.  Not too long ago, I found Red Velvet Cheesecake at Co-op, and of course, I had to pick up some for a treat!

Of course, because I’m a klutz, I bagged the cake myself.  (And tipped it on it’s side..) then it tipped again when serving it… So – the photo isn’t fantastic.

Red velvet + cheesecake = irresistible!

But, looks aren’t everything (so say the pretty boys and girls…) and taste is what we’re really after here!  This one had an icing-sugar-heavy style topping (which I found way too sweet) and the cheesecake itself was kind of crumbly and dry.  It was as though instead of adding the flavours and colour of Red Velvet – they added proper cake batter inside an otherwise plain cheesecake.

It was tasty, but didn’t really have the red velvet flavour that I was after… plus the texture was kind of.. well, not ideal.

So, maybe next time I’ll try this recipe from My Recipes dot com instead!  However, if you like the cake + cheesecake idea, The Sweet Wife has some beautiful photos and a recipe instead!
