In a small mixing bowl, sift in flour and corn starch, set aside. Place 6 egg yolks into a medium mixing bowl. Once cream cheese mixture is completely cooled, whisk the cream cheese into the egg yolks until smooth. Whisk in the sifted flour/cornstarch into the cream cheese/ egg yolk mixture until silky smooth, set aside.  In a large mixing bowl/Stand mixer, use electric hand mixer, add egg whites and cream of tarter and whisk on high until almost stiff peaks form. Slowly add sugar to the fluffy egg whites while still whisking on high until the sugar is mixed in and the peaks are stiff. Fold in with a rubber spatula the egg yolk, cream cheese mixture into the egg whites.  Fold in small amounts at a time until batter is completely blended ( making sure not to have yellow or white streaks throughout the batter). Pour the batter into the prepare baking dish. Place Ring form into another larger baking pan with hot water.
