Ingredients
 

For the Whipped Topping

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream cold
  • 4 Tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • gel food coloring purple, pink,and blue
  • unicorn sprinkles

For the Cheesecake

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • gel food coloring purple, pink,and blue
  • 24 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup sour cream

For the Cake

  • 15.25 ounces Funfetti cake mix + ingredients listed on box
  • 3 Tablespoons unicorn sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Fit a 9" springform pan with parchment paper on the bottom, then cover with a light coating of cooking spray. Set to the side.
  • Prepare Funfetti cake mix according to the instructions on the package, with the addition of stirring in 3 tbsp of unicorn sprinkles.
  • Pour Funfetti batter into springform pan until it is half full. Bake 23 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
    How to Make Unicorn Cheesecake
  • While the cake is cooling, prepare the cheesecake batter by beating cream cheese and sugar with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until combined before adding the next. Then add sour cream and vanilla, stirring until combined.
  • Divide cheesecake batter evenly into 3 bowls. Use gel food coloring to dye one purple, one pink, and one blue.
  • Alternating between colors, scoop each color batter onto the top of the Funfetti cake in the springform pan. Use an icing spatula to smooth out the top if necessary.
  • Bake 60 to 70 minutes. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for 60 minutes on a wire rack before refrigerating until cake is totally chilled (at least 4 hours and up to overnight).
    How to Make a Unicorn Cheesecake
  • Once completely chilled, carefully open the springform pan and remove the cheesecake. (It is important to not attempt to remove the cake from the pan until it is completely chilled!)
  • Prepare whipped topping by beating heavy whipping cream, vanilla and powdered sugar using a mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Divide whipped topping into 3 bowls, with one bowl twice as full as the others. Use gel food coloring to dye the largest part pink, and the remaining parts blue and purple.
  • Scoop each color whipped topping into its own piping bag. Alternating between all 3 colors, pipe a row of dots around the side of the cake. Use an icing spatula to spread the dots to create a petal look. Repeat until the side of the cake is completely covered.
    Icing the Unicorn Cheesecake
  • Pipe dots of pink whipped topping on top edge of the cheesecake and sprinkle with unicorn sprinkles.
  • Place cheesecake back into refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

To make the best whipped cream topping, be sure start with a chilled bowl and whisk. You can chill the bowl and whisk (or whisk attachment for your mixer) by popping them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before making your whipped cream.

    Um… YES!! Great idea, love that it is super easy to throw together and absolutely perfect for summer get togethers!!

  3. Oh this is awesome! So much fun, and I think cheesecakes are still an easier project to tackle than many unicorn desserts I’ve seen – so as someone who doesn’t get too ambitious in the dessert department, I just love this idea. I have a little toddler and this makes me so excited for the day when we can do fun projects like this together!

  4. Cheesecake is my favorite! I’m the only girl in the house, but think I deserve a unicorn cheesecake! Gonna treat myself to this dessert real soon!
