  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a bowl, blend the graham crackers until finely crushed. Mix with the melted butter to combine.
    • Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan to form the crust. Set aside.
  2. Make the Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the marshmallows, melted butter, and cream cheese. Beat until smooth.
    • Gradually add the warm whipping cream to the cheese mixture, stirring continuously.
    • Sprinkle in the gelatin mixture, ensuring it is fully incorporated and smooth.
    • Divide the cheesecake batter into three separate bowls. Color each bowl with purple, pink, and blue food gels respectively to create vibrant colors.

    • Use a skewer or knife to gently swirl the colors together, creating a galaxy effect.
    • Sprinkle the top with silver star sprinkles for an added celestial touch.

  • Ensure the whipping cream is warm to help the gelatin dissolve completely and integrate smoothly into the mixture.
  • For best results, chill the cheesecake overnight; this allows the flavors to meld and the texture to become perfectly set.
  • The food gels can be adjusted in quantity to achieve your desired intensity of color.
