I have a cold today. A really miserable one-stuffy nose, scratchy throat, achy head, yucky all over one.
But hey, it is a good excuse to sit and check out blogs and websites, right?
Well I had heard some rumors of a tie dyed cheesecake so I started searching..and what to my wondering eyes should appear but this picture and tantalizing information from Pop Food at SlashFood
well it looks so cool I absolutely had to find the recipe…and here it is, recipe:
For cake crust:
1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (or white cake mix with red food coloring), prepared according to box directions
16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract
2 large eggs
¼ cup sour cream
Pink, yellow, blue, green and purple food coloring
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 (yeah right! I would discard it into thenearest bowl and use a spoon before anyone else came in the kitchen). Allow cake layer to cool completely in the pan. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
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 each of the following colors to one bowl: pink, yellow, blue, green and purple. Pour batters onto cake base in the 9-inch springform pan. Swirl them together carefully; do not swirl too much, so the colors will be clearly visible.
Bake 35 minutes, until the center is set . Allow to cool completely and refrigerate before serving. Run a knife around the cake to release it before removing sides of pan. Serves 12.
I think it looks really fun! Can you imagine this as the centerpiece at a 60′s party?
