Cheesecake Filling Method:
Start by beating the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Keep the mixer on a low setting throughout the beating and mixing process.
Add the sugar a little at a time and continue beating until creamy.
Add one egg at a time and beat after each egg.
When eggs have been mixed into the cream cheese add flour, vanilla and lemon juice, mix well.
Add the sour cream last and beat well.
Divide the batter into 6 bowls and color each one: purple, red, yellow, light blue, green, orange.
Drop large spoonfuls of the colored batters randomly atop the red velvet cake in the springform pan. Swirl each layer slightly.
Place on the top rack in the middle of a 325°F preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
When time is up, prop open oven door and leave in oven for one hour. After one hour, remove from oven.
Let cool enough before the cheesecake is put into the refrigerator for 24 hours.
