      Made this for DH's Birthday and it was so good. Loved the red velvet flavor and the the cream cheese frosting really set it off. Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. The color is so intense and the texture nice. Made an impressive presentation for his special day

      I, too, took this to work today for a Christmas party potluck. Although there were quite a few leftover desserts, this one did not last! I think this is a delicious cheesecake. Because of its intense color, I would serve it for Christmas, New Year's, or Valentine's Day. [Original review 12/18/07 under chef KCShell.]
