You may not be familiar with the brilliantly purple root vegetable called ube, but it's a staple in many Filipino desserts. It's like a sweet potato with a slightly more complex flavor profile. Not only is ube delicious, but the color is stunning, too. That vibrant color is all natural.

S'mores are the ultimate summer dessert, but too many of its spinoffs forget the most critical element of any s'more—the toasty marshmallows. This decadent cheesecake isn't guilty of that. With a thick graham cracker crust, generous smattering of melty chocolate and a thick layer or singed marshmallows, we're sure it tastes as good as it looks.

We are obsessed with giant, fluffy Japanese-style cheesecakes. We have no idea how they get them to be so massive and airy, but the result is a delicious dessert with just the right amount of jiggle. Give it a shake to find out what we mean.

This strawberry shortcake cheesecake is all about the incredible layers. It consists of a delicious strawberry cheesecake filling sandwiched between a couple of layers of yellow cake, complete with strawberry preserves and plenty of fresh whipped cream. It's the perfect balance between lightness and richness—and it photographs well, too.

They call this doozy of a dessert the "Chocoholic Cheesecake," and we can certainly see why. Not only does it have a massive layer of chocolate on the inside, and coating all of its sides, but it's also topped with chocolate chip cookies, Kit Kats, Ferrero Rocher balls and Pirouline straw cookies.

Last but not least, we think there's something beautiful about this minimalistic baked ricotta cheesecake. There are no fancy fillings or toppings besides a single sprinkling of powdered sugar, yet it has a refined appearance. At a glance, we can tell it's much more than meets the eye. Brb while we book a flight to New York City to try it for ourselves.
