For all cheesecake-lovers out there; sinking your teeth into a super-velvety and lush cream cheese layer is undeniably the best feeling ever!

All you need are; some cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, graham crackers, and sliced fresh fruits for the toppings.

Just remember to refrigerate the pie for 4 hours before serving it to allow for the cream cheese and whipped cream mixture to solidify. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and consume it within four days. This will be one of the tastiest birthday desserts.
