My nephew's girlfriend wants me to make a red velvet cheesecake for her birthday and sent me a picture of a fondant covered cake design. Can you cover and stack cheesecake with fondant?

Yes you can, I use a 1/2 inch layer of cake on the bottom of the cheesecake and after it's bake I level it and top it with another 1/2 layer of cake.

You bake the cheesecake with a layer of cake under it as the crust?

Should I freeze it before covering it with fondant?

There is no reason to freeze it. I have the 4 inch side removable bottom pans I fit a cardboard round to the bottom and place the 1/2 inch cake round on top of that and next the cheese cake batter. I bake mine at 325 and test the center with a thermometer ( 160 ish) I usually bake the the left over batter and if the cake cracks I fill them in with the cooked leftover cheesecake. After it's cooled I remove it from the pan and top with the next 1/2 cake round, I then coat the cake with IMBC refrigerate and then cover with fondant. If I stack them, I only do 2 tiers and put the rest together on site . Hope that helps

It does. Thank you so much!

Any chance I can trouble you for a link to an IMBC recipe? I've only ever tried SMBC.

In case anyone was wondering, it covered and stacked great. I didn't end up leveling the cheesecake but I made sure there was a good layer of buttercream in between the layers of cheesecake and cake. Thank you!
