Birthday cheesecake ~ this creamy and decadent baked cheesecake recipe is filled with rainbow sprinkles, topped with white chocolate ganache and is sure to be a happy addition to any celebration!

Gather ingredients

Beat the room temperature cream cheese and granulated sugar on medium until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Now add the cornstarch, sour cream, vanilla and almond extract and beat until fully combined. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until just blended.

Once the final egg disappears into the batter, stop the mixer. Then add the sprinkles and use a spatula to make sure the final egg is fully combined and the sprinkles are evenly mixed in the batter.

Pour the cheesecake mixture into the pre-baked graham cracker crust.

Bake the cheesecake in the center of the oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the center is almost set. Turn the oven off and leave the door slightly open. Let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 30-60 minutes.

Once cool, spread white chocolate ganache over the cooled cheesecake with an offset spatula. Take the sprinkles you set aside and sprinkle them over the top of the white chocolate ganache.  Chill at least 6 hours.
