Im sure this could be done but how would it taste? I am doing an all white wedding cake that the bride wants a 10 inch cheese cake for her groom to be the third tier. I mean I love cheese cake but I am not so sure that I would eat it with buttercream on it. Have any of you done a cheesecake wedding where the cake looked like a standard wedding design? If so I would love to know techniques , design ideas special recipes ... ect. I do not want to make the whole cake in cream cheese icing because the bride specifically wants this tier to be for the groom and her.

In The Cake Bible, there is recipe for White Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream. The author points out that this recipe works well with cheese cake, not only complementing the flavor, but the color as well. HTH.

Thanks I had thought about a chocolate buttercream but I am concerned that the color would not match the standard buttercream going on the cake. The bride does not want and Ivory cake and I am scared that the colors are not going to be consistant

I've had cheesecake at The Cheesecake Cafe (like the Cheesecake Factory) that had buttercream on it, plus a chocolate buttercream florette on top. The layer was SUPER thin, and it tasted yummy!!! I think if you don't have it too thick it will be fine! Besides, if they don't like it, they can always scrape it off, right?

I actually do this all the time with brides wanting a cheesecake as one of their tiers. I bake up the bottom layer with graham cracker crust, then I bake up 2 layers with no crust (use parchment paper in your pans). I use the crusting cream cheese recipe from this website inbetween the layers and to fill. I even cover with fondant and you can't even tell the difference between the cheese cake and regular cake tiers. People rave about the taste too!

Not sure if this will help...but in Toba Garett's book "The Well Decorated Cake", there is a recipe for a Chocolate Chocolate Cheesecake Cake (i think that it is what it is called) icon_confused.gif .

Essentially, the recipe is for a chocolate cake with a cheesecake layer in the middle.

No problem! I was really worried about doing this my first time!! I actually included cheesecake with the crusting creamcheese recipe for one of my cake testings... brides loved it!

I have done this as well. I make two cheese cake with crust completely built up the side. After they have cooled I freeze them for a couple of hours. I stack them directly on top of one another. I have a graham cracker crust layer in the middle. Then I crumb coat and continue as I normally would for any cake. BTW, I use IMBC for the finish on my cakes which is fairly soft.

Thanks it looks like all these are covered in fondant. I may have to change the icing on her if the color difference is visable
