After featuring the Tie-Dye Cheesecake recipe on Disney Food Blog back in July 2009, I figured it was high time to review it!
Found at Disney World’s Pop Century Resort, this unique dessert has been a staple since the resort’s opening in 2003. And one reason why I think it’s particularly special (besides the fact that it’s gorgeous) is that it’s one of only a few unique, resort-specific desserts found on Disney World property (Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Zebra Domes and Port Orleans French Quarter’s beignets are two others in the club).
While this cake looks crazy, it’s actually pretty simple in structure. A multi-colored cheesecake sits atop a red velvet cake “crust.” That’s it! And boy is it delicious.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. It looks like play-doh. Well, yes. It does look like play-doh. And even when you’re eating it, it’s kind of wacky that your eyes are telling you that it’s probably going to taste awful. But the creamy texture, rich taste, and moist red velvet cake chaser are — honestly — a wonderful dessert! One I crave every time I go to Pop Century’s awesome food court!
And, for $3.59, this is a Disney World bargain!
