Our 7 Ultimate Cheesecake Recipes

By Britney Brown-Chamberlain

I make red cakes every year for Juneteenth, the holiday that commemorates the events of June 19, 1865, when Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas, and officially freed slaves across the state. The color red is a symbol of the enslaved Africans who died and I love that I have the freedom to express myself in modern times while honoring those who paved the way for me.

I make a Red Velvet cake every year and this is my new favorite version! Called a tuxedo cake because of its alternating dark and light layers, this recipe is a showstopper. It's perfect for any celebratory event but also for a delicious treat that truly is ice cream's best friend.

Strawberry meringue cake

This pie has a buttery, golden graham cracker crust that cradles a deliciously smooth strawberry curd filling topped with fresh strawberries. The soft and delicate layer of meringue melts in your mouth and gives this cake a beautiful velvety texture. Each delicious bite is a blend of fruity strawberry perfection, making this cake an irresistible delight.
