Clever mum reveals recipe for 'magical' rainbow cheesecake with perfect layers

A mum has revealed her recipe for a white chocolate cheesecake with perfect rainbow layers – and it looks incredibly tasty.

The delicious-looking desert features a marshmallow and rice bubble crust wrapped with light puffs of whipped cream on top, and, of course, those irresistible layers of colour running through it.

The mum shared pictures of the completed cake a day before sharing another post revealing the beautiful layers inside. And everybody wants to give it a try.

There are six stunning layers of different coloured cheesecake inside, and they are only revealed when you cut into the cake because the top layer is decorated with whirls of cream and vibrant sprinkles.

But you’ll have to be patient if you want to give it a try – it takes a long time to get such an eye-catching finish.

Each layer has to be chilled for up to 20 minutes before the next can be added on top.

The rainbow cake will also create quite a mess in the kitchen – as six mixing bowls are required at once to get it right.

The creative woman shared the recipe and her method to making the cake in the comments of her Facebook post.

How to make a rainbow white chocolate cheesecake

Ingredients

Whipped cream

  • 250ml of thickened/whipping cream
  • 175ml sweetened condensed milk
  • One tsp vanilla extract 

Base

  • Four tbsp butter
  • 150g, six cups of rice bubbles
  • One packet of giant marshmallows  

Cheesecake filling

  • Two tbsp powdered gelatin and 175ml cold water
  • Four 250g packets of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 175ml sweetened condensed milk
  • 375ml thickened/whipping cream
  • 250g white chocolate, melted
  • One tsp vanilla extract
  • Two drops each of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and pink food gel

Method

Melt butter and marshmallows, add rice bubbles and press into tin.

Add the water and gelatin to a small mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Allow to sit and ‘bloom’ for five minutes. Then microwave for 30 seconds. Set aside.

Add the cream cheese and condensed milk to a clean food processor. Mix until completely smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula and add cream. Mix again until well combined. Lastly, add the melted white chocolate, melted gelatin and vanilla extract. Mix until very smooth.

Split the mixture into six bowls. Colour each one in the colours of the rainbow using gel food colouring. Mix using a spoon until evenly coloured.

Now, the next bit is a bit time consuming if you want each layer nice and clean and even. Begin by pouring the red mixture into the prepared pie crust. Place in the freezer or fridge to chill for ten-20 minutes to help it set. Then repeat with the rest of the mixture in the order of the rainbow.

Once all the layers are in there, place in the fridge to chill overnight, or for at least four hours.

Next comes the whipped cream icing. 

Add the cream, condensed milk and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl. Use an electric hand mixer to whip to stiff peaks. Place into a large piping bag fitted with an open star tip. Pipe swirls of cream on top of the cheesecake and sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles.

On the original Facebook post, people were loving the photos of the ‘magical’ cake and couldn’t wait to try it out themselves.

‘It tasted great, actually not too sweet at all. It was a nice change and fun,’ one woman reviewed after giving the recipe a go.

‘Who needs chefs? All of you home cooks are amazing,’ another woman said.
