      • Don’t love strawberries? Swap out for any fruit of your choice - try blackberries or blueberries!
      • To avoid the cheesecake being too liquid, be sure to use heavy cream for your whipped cream and not the whipped cream from a can.
      • The cheesecake needs to chill for at least two hours, but we recommend overnight if possible!
