This fluorescent purple cheesecake takes the best bits of carrot cake (the creamy frosting and spices) and ditches the worst (the baking and fuss). It’s coloured entirely by the natural hue of the carrots, but if you don’t like the purple there are plenty of other shades to pick from. Miss the walnuts? Just shove a handful of chopped ones into the base mix.
