Red Velvet Cheesecake

For some reason I've been having trouble uploading photos here.  It's working ok now, so hopefully the trend will continue.

In other news, grad school is a complete time drain.  One day, it will be over.  And I will have awesome free time back again, right?

In the meantime I've made a couple amazing cakes.  This red one was in honor of Red's Opening Day.  I was in the parade, so I took this cake to work a few days in advance to let everyone eat it up.

It was quite well received.  That's a layer of cheesecake there in the middle. 
A wee bit lopsided, but strategic buttercream frosting pile-ups can hide a lot.
I've heard they serve these at Cheesecake Factory.  It's not something I would have picked.  But how fitting for Cincinnati Red's Opening Day!
