Tie-Dyed Red Velvet Cheesecake

Tie-Dyed Red Velvet Cheesecake


  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Food coloring


  1. Prepare cake mix according to box directions. Pour 1/2 of the 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.
  2. Allow cake to cool completely in the pan. Set aside.
  3. Heat oven to 325 degrees F (162 degrees C).
  4. In a large bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract until smooth.
  5. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add in sour cream.
  6. Divide mixture into 5 small bowls and add the following colors to each one: pink, yellow, blue, green and purple.
  7. Pour batters onto cake base in the 9-inch springform pan. Do not swirl too much, so the colors will be clearly visible.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes, until the center is just about set when you jiggle the pan.
  9. Allow to cool completely and refrigerate before serving.
  10. Run a knife around the cake to release it before removing sides of pan.
