Red Velvet has been gaining popularity over the years. Few years back red velvet cake was almost unheard of. I always get the question of what red velvet cake is but now more and more cafes are offering them as part of their daily offerings. I bet if you walk into any any cake shop, chances of you seeing a red velvet cake is pretty high- almost 90%.
For my sisters’s birthday, I decided to bake a Strawberry cheesecake pie for her. Not any ordinary pie but a red velvet one. Red is in and so are cookie based pies ( I recently wrote about the mini cookie cup base so this is just a bigger version of that). Recipe for the cookie base can be found here!
and fresh strawberries blended and folded into the cheese mixture
Topped it with a silky smooth whipped Philadelphia cheese and for the most fun part. Decorating the top of the pie with ombre rose pink swirls, fresh strawberries and graham cracker crumbs. Viola.
