1box of funfetti cake mixplus ingredients listed on box
3barscream cheese8 oz each, softened
1cuplow fat sour cream
1cupcrushed animal circus cookies
pink food coloring
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a springform pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Prepare the funfetti cake batter according to directions on the box.
Crush circus animal crackers (an easy way to do this is with a rolling pin) so that you have chunks, not crumbs. Stir circus cookies into cake batter so they are evenly distributed.
Pour funfetti cake batter into springform pan and bake for 35 minutes at 350°F.
When cake is done baking, remove from oven and allow to cool.
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer), combine cream cheese and sugar; mix on medium speed until smooth. (Tip: Make sure cream cheese is at room temperature so it is soft enough to mix smoothly.)
Scrape the sides of bowl and begin mixing again, adding in one egg at a time.
Finally, add vanilla and sour cream and mix until well combined.
Split the cheesecake batter into two bowls. Add pink food coloring drop by drop until you've achieved your desired shade. Keep the other bowl of cheesecake batter white.
Using a 1 cup measuring cup, scoop some of the white cheesecake batter into the springform pan on top of your funfetti cake. After white batter spreads itself out, pour 1 cup of pink cheesecake batter in the middle of the white cheesecake.
Repeat, alternating colors until all cheesecake batter is used.
Return springform pan to oven and bake for 1 hour until cheesecake is set. Place on wire rack to cool.
Top with whipped cream, confetti sprinkles, and frosted animal crackers.
