The Cheesecake Factory Bakery, the concept that launched the chain of Cheesecake Factory restaurants, supplies desserts to a wide range of foodservice operations. A restaurant kitchen can take one of the company’s signature cheesecakes, cupcakes and other baked goods and use them as a foundation for a signature dessert, like these thick shakes. They start with red velvet and chocolate blackout cupcakes, whipped up in the blender to a frothy treat.

Ingredients

1 frozen red velvet or chocolate blackout cupcake
5 oz. vanilla ice cream
3 oz. whole milk
Whipped cream, for garnish

  2. Add ice cream and milk to blender container. Cover and blend until well mixed and frothy.
  3. Pour shake into serving glass. Garnish with whipped cream and reserved cake crumbs.

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first. Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.
