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!

Hi island girl.  This post is a few years old, but I think I get what she was saying.  First off you make 2 x 2"cakes and cook them.  Then you get a 4" tall removable bottom cake pan - you know the one with the side release?  You place one cake in the bottom, pour on your cheesecake filling and bake slowly till cheesecake is set.  When it's cool, you then place the other cake on top and decorate as desired.  That's how I read it anyways.  Good luck. :)
