Rainbow Cheesecake

Dante and Caitlin show us how to make a rainbow cheesecake in the kitchen. Cheesecake is a quite popular dessert that is preferred by many people all over the world! It’s sweet and tasty which is perfect if you have a sweet tooth.

Cheesecakes are known to go back to at least Greece and were given to the athletes during the Olympic Games, which started in 776 BC.

Food is touched by many hands and machinery before it gets to us, so wiping them when you get home from the shop is the best way to make sure it’s clean

You’ll need:

  • 4 packs lemon sandwich biscuits
  • 1kg plain full cream yogurt
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 sachets gelatine powder
  • 6 tablespoon water
  • Whipped cream
  • 400g speckled eggs

Let’s see what tools we’ll need to cook this. A really important chef’s rule is that your work surface must always be clean so make sure it’s clean before you start working and then clean as you go.

  • You’ll need:
  • Reusable bag
  • Rolling pin
  • Oven dish
  • Spoon
  • Tablespoon
  • Bowls
  • Microwave
  • Fridge

Make sure to wash your hands during this time too, before we start touching the food.

  • Step 1: Pour into a greased dish and microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  • Step 2: Mix the crumbs together, then press into the bottom of the dish with the back of a spoon.
  • Step 3: Add 6 tablespoons of cold water to a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatine powder into the water. Ensure the gelatine is completely saturated with water, then set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Step 4: Mix the yoghurt and condensed milk together in a bowl. Microwave the filling for 2-3 minutes on high. Remove the bowl, mix rapidly and return to the microwave for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Step 5: Microwave the gelatine mixture for 20 seconds at a time until completely dissolved (don’t allow to boil).
  • Step 6: Pour the gelatine into the yoghurt mixture and mix well.
  • Step 7: Now we mix the pink, yellow and blue food colouring into each of the yoghurt cheesecake mixtures.
  • Step 8: Pour the blue-coloured cheesecake mixture over the biscuit base. Smooth out the top and put it in the fridge for 1 hour, or until it’s firm enough to hold its shape.

And when the blue is set firm, you do the same process with the yellow and the pink. Once all 3 layers are set, there’s just one more step to do but you’ll have to wait till after the break to see what it is!

And now we can decorate each square with whipped cream, a sprinkle of chocolate and some mini pastel-coloured eggs.
