“There's nothing like a cheesecake to let someone know how special they are. These beautiful hearts are rich, creamy, and make a beautiful gift any time of year. For Valentine's Day, I'd make them really small (of course, you'll get more than 12) and put them in a recycled candy box with some tissue paper. What a gorgeous delicious gift!”
