recipe: looking for: layer cake with cheesecake taste & texture

My daughter would like a wedding cake that has a cheesecake taste & texture to it. She's had cakes with cream cheese frosting, but she's looking for the "cake part" to be more like a cheesecake.

If you don't have a recipe, maybe you know the name of this type of cake? Italian cake (made with ricotta cheese)? or Japanese cheesecake?...or know of a bakery that makes something like this? I live in Southern California.

There is a one layer cake called "Italian Love Cake" that has the texture you are looking for and its made with ricotta cheese. Even if it isn't what you are looking for you should give it a try. It's good. Here's the recipe:

1 box fudge marble cake or cake of your choice
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 lbs ricotta cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (3-1/2 oz) box instant chocolate pudding or your choice
1 cup milk
8 oz cool whip

Mix cake as directed. Pour into greased & floured 13x9 pan. In separate bowl combine ricott, sugar, eggs & vanilla; mix well. Spoon over top of unbaked cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Cool. Mix udding with milk; fold in whipped topping. Spread over cake . Refrigerate. I added 1 tsp. almond extract to cool whip simply because I like almond flavor.
