Chocolate Green Tea Cheese Cake

I will go on a trip for two months, so now it is clean-up time. I found two small boxes of Philadelphia cream cheese in the freezer , which were bought for making cheese cakes. After I decided the main ingredients, then I started to search for all other necessary ingredients to go with the cheese. At end I realized that other ingredients were such a long list. Anyway, all these were used to make a successful cake. I like how the cheese cake turned out.

Eggs 2

Water as required on the Jello instruction

How I make it?

Cake, it is a chiffon style cake.
1. A: Mix all ingredients except egg while, cream of tartar, and 1 tbs icing sugar. Well blended.
2. B: Beat the egg white till the peak forms. Add sugar, cream of tartar after beating for 1 minute.
3. Mix A and B, using one third method.
3. 300F, 45 minutes. Low temperature to prevent the crack.

Cheese cake layer:
1. Mix the green tea powder with a little bit of water, mix well. And then add everything else in a bowl except the gelatin and water. Beat till smooth.
2. Follow the gelatin instructions, and mix gelatin water with the cheese mix.
3. Pour the mix on top of cooled chocolate cake with the parchment paper on the side of the spring form to prevent the stickiness.
4. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours.

Top layer:
1. Cut the grapefruit, and line up the small wedges nicely on the top of the cheese cake.
2. Pure on the Jello mix. Make sure the Jello water is not hot, otherwise it will melt the cheese layer.
3. Chill in the fridge again for 1-2 hours.

After the cake was done, there was grapefruit left with the Jello, so a genius idea came up: ........... Grapefruit Jello.....Here you have it.
Mix grapefruit flesh, Jello water, and sugar. Let it set in the fridge for 3 hours.
Serve with mint, syrup, or anything you like.

This seems like a very nice display of your work. But wouldn't the top layer have too strong of an impact on the taste compared to the middle layer?

I would like to try it someday
