"I came up with this recipe when a friend requested a Red Velvet Cheesecake for his birthday. It is a tradition of mine to make cakes for each of my friends on their birthdays."

I LOVE this cheesecake! It is for sure the best cheesecake I've ever had, EVER! I can't get enough of this tasty cheesecake.
Tasted good but the texture of the cake was weird. I would use this recipe as a filling for another cake recipe
This is my favorite recipe I've ever made!
I cut the red velvet in half at it's diameter, drying out the cake in the oven then blending it into fine crumbs with a food processor. I added about a tablespoon more butter to the crust and packed it into the bottom of a 9 inch pan instead of 10. I then cut the other half in half (so if I used the whole cake I would have had quarters) and then I cut those down the middle as if I was making a layer cake instead of cubing it. After I put my first layer of the cheesecake in the pan, I arranged the sliced cake so it covered the surface completely and then put the remaining cheesecake over it.
The only problem I had was that it didn't really set in the fridge, but I was using light cream cheese so that may have been the problem. I would definitely make this again, as it got eaten in two days!
OMG! This is sooooo good! This is a keeper!
This was perfect. A friend of mine's two favorite desserts are cheesecake and red velvet cake. Together they are heavenly. Strongly recommend this recipe to anyone who loves the sound of two amazing dishes put together.
For a no bake cheesecake this was awesome and very fun! I loved the crust and would never have thought to use cake for one. I am going to experiment with this recipe with other flavors. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!
It didnt look so pretty when I was done, but the taste was a big hit.
This was very yummy. i used a red velvet cake mix instead of making one from scratch. The cream cheese mixture is what makes this though. I would like to try it with some other cake flavors as well.
