How to Make Decorative Cheesecake

After a pretty emotional weekend, I thought I would kick off this week with something fun, bright and full of sprinkles. This Tie Dye Cheesecake definitely fits into all of those categories.

Learn To Bake and Decorate Cheesecake

I feel like cheesecake is one of those things you either love or your hate. There are not many people out there who have a “meh” feeling about cheesecake. But no matter how you feel about eating cheesecake, you have to admit this one is pretty to look at.

But if you happen to be one of those people who love cheesecake (like me) I think you will be pretty happy with this recipe. I switched out the traditional graham cracker crust for a confetti Golden Oreo one, and topped the whole thing off with a simple whipped cream and sprinkle topping! It’s simple, delicious and pretty! What more could you ask for?

Ingredients
  

CRUST

  • 2 cups crushed Golden Oreos
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sprinkles

FILLING

  • 2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Food coloring

TOPPING

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Sprinkles

Instructions
 

For the crust

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a 9" springform pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl combine Oreo crumbs and melted butter until throughly combined.
  • Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan and about 1/2 inch up the side.
  • Bake 12 - 15 minutes until the crumbs are set.
  • Let cool on a wire rack

For the filling

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, cream cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  • Add sugar and beat on high for an additional 3 minutes.
  • Add vanilla extract and salt and mix until just combined.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down the side of the bowl with a spatula after each addition.
  • Add sour cream and mix until combined.
  • Add heavy cream and mix until combined.
  • Divide the batter into four bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring to each one.
  • Transfer colorful batter to four separate pipping bags. Twist the tops and and place them in a large bowl.
  • Starting with one color, cut the bottom of the pipping bag and place a few generous dollops of batter all over the crust. Repeat with another colors (making sure you evenly distribute them) until you reach the top of the pan.
  • Once your dollops are filled to the top, stick a knife down into the batter and make a swirling like motion all over the pan.
  • Wrap the outside of your springform pan in aluminum foil.
  • Place the pan inside a high-sided roasting pan.
  • Create a water bath by filling the roasting pan with hot water until you reach halfway up the side of the cheesecake pan.
  • Bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  • After an hour and a half, turn the oven off and crack the door open 1 inch.
  • Leave the cheesecake like this for 1 hour.
  • After an hour, take the cheesecake out of the oven and place aluminum foil over the top (making sure the foil does not actually touch the cheesecake).
  • Place in the refrigerator for 4 hours.

For the topping

  • In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, mix heavy whipping cream on a high speed until it begins to thicken.
  • Add powdered sugar and whip until the cream has become firm.
  • Put whipping cream into a prepared piping bag with a star tip.
  • Pipe stars all over the top of the cheesecake.
  • Add sprinkles.

We should all be more like Olive. 
 
▶️ We should do what we love–no matter how crazy people think it is.

▶️ Let me spell it out for you: Don’t let the fear of what others might think stop you. 
 
I can’t tell you the number of times someone told me I should “go get a real job” or asked me “but how do you make money doing that?”
 
👎 The judgment was THERE. Alllll the time. 
 
But. I did it anyway (and you should too). 
 
🐶 And Olive living her best life on the deck reminded me how powerful that could be. 
 
So if you are thinking…
 
😶 I am not good enough. 
😶 It’s not the right time. 
😶 What will people think?
😶 The market is too saturated. 
 
✔️ I want you to think of Olive and her deck. 
 
I want you to remember that we only get one life. And we all deserve to do what we love, no matter how crazy other people think we are. 
 
Believe me, it’s worth it. 💛
