I don't need a reason to have cheesecake. I could have cheesecake every day, no matter what. That's probably why there are more than ten recipes for cheesecake, or cheesecake related desserts on this blog. Red Velvet Cheesecake With Cream Cheese Icing seemed like the next logical step in cheesecake recipe making. I had two reasons to make this. One, it's National Cheesecake Day, and you HAVE to have cheesecake on National Cheesecake Day, and two, I wanted to make something special for a friend who really helped us out. In both I believe that I've succeeded because dang! This cheesecake was amazing.
