Dear Lisa,
Thank you so much for making this beautiful cheesecake for Rory! We fell in love over your chocolate raspberry. He had never eaten cheesecake before yours and now swears that he’ll only eat cheesecake with me. However, the real situation is that he also won’t eat anyone else’s cheesecake but yours! He ate half the cake the first night! You made his 40th magical!

Subject: To Lisa from Jane, birthday lady

Hello Lisa,

This is Jane, the birthday lady that stopped in today.  You kindly gavbe me a piece of your blueberry cheesecake.  I am almost beyond words in describing this delicacy!  It is so light, airy and creamy.  It languishes on your tongue.  The blueberries are firm and delightful with just the right sweetness.  I detect a lovely flavor in the crust I cannot quite pin down.  This cheesecake is perfection in sight, on a fork and in one's mouth! You gave me my only birthday present and is the best one I received in years!  Thank you for your generosity and kindness.  You are a lovely human being.  I look forward to seeing you on Friday and speaking more and for cheesecake!
