Q: Can I use a different type of pan for this recipe? A: It’s best to use a bundt pan to achieve the unique shape and even cooking, but you can use a regular round cake pan as an alternative, adjusting the baking time as needed.

Q: How do I ensure my cheesecake filling doesn’t sink? A: Make sure the cheesecake layer is centered and surrounded by cake batter, and do not overfill. The thickness of the red velvet batter helps hold the cheesecake layer in place.

Q: Can this cake be made in advance? A: Yes, this cake can be made up to two days in advance. Store it in the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before serving.
