No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake for Valentine's Day

“Sent to me via email, this has to be one of the easiest, yet one of the most romantic cakes I've seen in a long time. I wish I could post the picture that came with this, but since I didn't make it, or take it, one of the wonderful Zaar photogs is going to have to step up to the plate (literally!). The person who made the cheesecake said she used a silicone heart-shaped mold but the cake did not set as solidly as a baked cake, so she threw it in the freezer for about half an hour before unmolding. Cooking time is chill time.”
