Rainbow cheesecake bars

Rainbow cheesecake bars

Prep time: 30 mins
Serves: 9
Total time: 3 hours, including chill time
Difficulty: intermediate

For the base

  • 260g Golden Oreos
  • 125g butter, melted

For the cheesecake layer

  • 250g full-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 200g white chocolate, melted
  • 250ml double cream
  • 125g mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g rainbow sprinkles

For the rainbow whipped cream

  • 310ml double cream
  • 125g mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Yellow, orange, red, blue, green and purple food colouring gel
  1. Spray the sides and bottom of a square 9-inch cake tin. Add the golden Oreos to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until you reach fine crumbs. Add the butter and pulse until you’ve got a crumbly mixture.
  2. Add to the cake tin and use the back of a spoon to spread evenly and press firmly into the bottom of the cake tin. Chill in the fridge while you make the cheesecake layer.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and beat until fluffy, using an electric hand mixer. Scrape down the bowl and add the melted white chocolate. Mix until well combined.
  4. To a separate large bowl, add the cream, mascarpone, and vanilla extract. Whip to stiff peaks. Add the whipped cream to the cheesecake mixture and use a spatula to gently fold through until well combined.
  5. Add the sprinkles and fold through to combine. Add the mixture to the cake tin, using a spatula to spread as evenly and flat as you can get it. Chill in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours.
  6. To another mixing bowl, add the cream, mascarpone, and vanilla extract. Whip to stiff peaks. Separate into 5 bowls and add food gel. Fold through until well combined.
  7. Add the cream to piping bags and pipe lines of whipped cream on top, in order of the rainbow. Dip a spoon into boiling water, wipe it dry and gently run over the cream for a smoother finish. 
  8. Chill for 10 minutes, then slice into nine bars.

Make your own rainbow triangle bunting

Rainbow triangle bunting

What you’ll need:

  • Plenty of coloured paper to represent the colours of the rainbow - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
  • String or twine.
  • Scissors.
  • Hole puncher.


  1. Take your coloured paper and cut it into large, equal sized squares.
  2. Once you’ve made your squares, cut them diagonally so you end up with two triangles from each square.
  3. With your hole puncher, make two holes near the top of each triangle, on the longest side. Be sure to check they're aligned and equally spaced.
  4. Take your string or twine and thread it through the holes in the triangles. Start with the violet triangle, then indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, and finally, red. Continue this pattern until you've threaded all your triangles.
  5. Remember to also leave enough string on both ends so you can hang your bunting up!
  6. Finally, the fun part - decide where you want to hang your bunting. It could be across the room, over your door, or along a wall - the choice is yours!
