Hi! I might make the red velvet cheesecake…and shared the link with my sister. I’ve challenged her to try it. Looking forward to trying it. Looks incredible. I’ll post a picture if I actually follow-up on the challenge to MYSELF :) Thanks for an incredible post. I enjoyed looking back at all your lovely stories and creations.

Yay, I hope you will, Lori!! It’s actually very easy if you just split it up in parts and take it step by step. I have this video about layered cheesecakes that might help, too! The only thing that ever goes wrong is sometimes the crust isn’t tall enough for the cake layer to fit down in, so make your crust go up as high as you can — but even if your cake sticks out, nothing a little icing can’t fix ;)
