I made this for my sisters birthday and it was a big hit! To decorate I added strawberries around the edges of the cake and one on top (a good idea as the strawberries used don't add a large amount of flavour to the cheesecake). Everyone seemed to really love it though and the instructions were quite simple and easy to follow!
