For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups Graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup melted butter

For the Cheesecake:

  • 4 (8-ounce) bars cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional: 1 tsp lemon extract for a tangy flavor)
  • Americolor food coloring gel (blue, red, yellow)


Crust Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine Graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press into the bottom and sides of a leak-proof pan.
  3. Bake for 7 minutes then cool on a rack.

Cheesecake Filling:

  1. In a mixer with a paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  3. Mix in cream and extracts until creamy.
  4. Divide the batter among several bowls, adding different food coloring to each.
  5. Pour colored batter into the crust, using a knife to swirl colors gently.


  1. Prepare a water bath in a large pan.
  2. Place the cheesecake pan in the bath.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes until edges are set but center is slightly wobbly.
  4. Turn off oven, let cheesecake rest inside for an hour.


  1. Remove from water bath, cool on a rack.
  2. Refrigerate overnight.


  • Use gel food coloring for the most vibrant colors.
  • Don’t overmix colors to maintain the best visual effect.
  • Ensure the pan is leak-proof or wrap it in heavy-duty foil to prevent water seepage.


  1. Can I use regular food coloring instead of gel? Gel food coloring is recommended for its intensity and ability to blend without adding excess liquid to the mix.
  2. How can I prevent cracks in my cheesecake? Avoid overmixing the batter, especially after adding the eggs, and use a water bath during baking to help regulate the oven’s heat.
  3. Can this cheesecake be frozen? Yes, you can freeze the cheesecake for up to a month. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and foil to maintain freshness.
