Happy Berry Cheesecake - There's nothing like a bright smile to create a happy atmosphere. This cheesecake will have everyone smiling. If you prefer you can use peeled apple chunks or banana slices for the nose and eyes and strawberries in place of the raspberries. Serve each piece with a small dollop of cool whip topped with the extra pieces of fruit.
