Why does cream cheese have to be at room temperature?
Your cream cheese mixture needs to be without lumps so that it’s creamy and tasty so that means that it’s important for your cream cheese to be at room temperature before using.
If it’s not, then you’re never going to get it to have that creamy texture and you’re more than likely going to have lumps in it no matter what you try to do.

To make the Cheesecake
- In a mixing bowl, put the softened cream cheese and mix on low speed. Blend until creamy.
- Add in the half and half, blending the whole time. Add the heavy cream a little at a time and blend as well.
- Make certain that you're scraping the sides as you go.
- Add in the vanilla, and the granulated sugar, and blend well.
- Next, take and add the powdered sugar a little at a time, blending between additions.
- Once done, take and pour half of the mixture into another bowl, and place in the refrigerator.

- Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of blue food coloring gel, and blend. Once that is done, add 1/2 teaspoon of purple food coloring gel, and blend.
- When you get the color that you like, pour the mixture into the Spring-form pan on top of the blueberry muffin crust. Allow it to sit for 2 hours.
- Once that time has passed, remove the white cheesecake from the fridge and pout it on top of the blue layer. This is going to be full in the pan so just smooth it with a spoon and place it back in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
- Before serving, put some of the shortbread crumble on top of the cheesecake and then take off the outside form from the Spring-form pan.
