Cheesecake Layered Red Velvet Cake, THM S, Sugar-free, Gluten-free, Low-carb

Our family loves Cheesecake and Red Velvet Cake, so why not combine the two into this fabulous dessert. The Red Velvet Cake has a secret ingredient in it to help keep it moist. Try this elegant dessert for your next family gathering. I am sure they will love it.

For those of you who avoid food coloring–I did try this cake with other sources of red natural items but could not get the red coloring I wanted. I do have red beet powder and red beets in the cake but neither are enough to get a nice red color.

The frosting I used has unflavored gelatin in to stiffen the frosting so it can be used to decorate. I find it holds up well even at room temperature for a bit.

This recipe may be intimidating to some people but it can be made in steps. I often bake the Red Velvet Cake a few days before I want to serve this cake. It freezes very well. The day before I want to serve this-I make the cheesecake. I refrigerate the cheesecake overnight. It is best to have all four layers thoroughly chilled or frozen when working with them.

  • I make the Red Velvet Cake a few days before I want to serve it. I freeze the layers on a cookie sheet. The day before I want to serve the cake I make the cheesecake. I chill the cheesecake overnight in the fridge. A few hours before I want to assemble the cake I put the cheesecake in the freezer. This makes the cake easy to assemble when the layers are frozen.

This Red Velvet Cake is ready to be taken out of the oven. Doesn’t it look wonderful!

All four layers are stacked on top of each other with a thin layer of frosting in between. I frosted the sides of the cake with the “naked” look. I know need to pipe edging and rosettes on the top.
