Red velvet cake (very moist).
White chocolate cheesecake.
Covered with white chocolate cream cheese frosting.
Do I need to say anymore? I can’t even find the words to explain how delicious this is.

This is a LONG post. Sorry, but I included all the little tips that make it turn out perfectly. The entire recipe is 2 pages typed up. Yep. It’s in printable pdf at the very bottom, though, for your convenience.

This is 75% developed by myself. One of the red velvet recipes (yes, 1 of them) is from another site. I’ve included the link below. The rest is a combination of common cheesecake recipes, but I’ve added my own modifications. The same with the frosting.

Good news: It’s even more delicious than it looks…it takes a bit of effort to make.

Bad news: It’s ideally an overnight dessert (the cheesecake tastes better if it freezes overnight). Sorry. But trust me: it is SO worth it.

Layered Red Velvet and White Chocolate Cheese with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. The most delicious dessert you will ever make. Step-by-step pictures.

White Chocolate Cheesecake:

For the cheesecake, you’ll need:
Two (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
6 oz. white chocolate
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
pinch of salt
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cheesecake is an interesting challenge. But if you don’t mind an extremely long post, I’m going to share the details of how I make it and how it turns out correctly. There are also quite a few pictures.

Red Velvet Cake:

The red velvet cake is next. There are actually two ways to do this.
1) You can use the boxed cake method with my adjustments. Pros: Easier! Cons: Not as moist.
2) You can make from scratch. Pros: Moist, delicious. Great, deep color. Cons: Takes a lot more effort.
I’ve included them both (in the printable PDF) so you can make your own decision.
The “from scratch” recipe is from: StuckAtHomeMom.

Please, please visit her site! It’s great. And I didn’t have to make a single adjustment to this cake. It was perfect as is. Though I did wince pouring in a cup and a half of oil. (The blood red pics are from the boxed cake mix; the deeper one is the “from scratch.”)
Also note the bread on the top of the finished cake. I usually make the cheesecake, cool it, and put it in freezer. Also on the first day I make the red velvet cake. If you leave it out with a piece of bread on top overnight, it will be just as moist in the morning. I swear. I looked up the science before I tried it because I didn’t believe it!

Then on day two, I assemble and frost.

White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:

For step-by-step pics (it’s not that complicated, really), but might be useful, see the post “White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted lightly to remove any lumps
Two (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
12 oz. baker’s white chocolate

Prepare the frosting:

  • Set out cream cheese and butter and allow it to warm to room temperature.
  • Sift the powdered sugar.
  • Cream together room temperature cream cheese and butter. Scrape down bowl and make 
sure there are absolutely no lumps.
  • Melt chocolate in microwave- 30 seconds at 50% power. Stir well. Microwave in additional 
15 second increments, stirring every time, until melted. Do NOT overheat. Allow to cool 
slightly.
  • Add melted chocolate and vanilla to cream cheese and butter. Mix well.
  • Add sugar gradually, beating well, until light and fluffy after each addition.
  • Add sugar to 
desired sweetness; may not use all of the sugar.

Final prep:
