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

Steps

  1. Unwrap frozen cupcake and cut into quarters. Place cupcake in blender container, reserving a few cake crumbs 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.

chefs

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch. Through featuring different chefs and chef-inspired meals, I’ve found the students have been looking forward to coming into the cafeteria.
