Strawberry swirl Rare Cheesecake: Welcome Month of Love

 Sometime I just want to bake or make something ^^, without any reasons, no request or even thinking about it before.

 It happens in less than a minute, I think I want and I will make it, pick up my recipe notebook, write down the idea and recipe then go into the kitchen. It's not a good habit, but it helps giving me fresh idea, recipe and make each day interesting. 
So, when someone sent me a request I can say that I want to try it but the matter is "When" haha. For this cake, I just think about the look of it, the red color swirl made from strawberry on a white cheesecake, beautiful, right? I can't stop myself from making it.
Rare cheesecake is easy to make, and this recipe is good esp. for any people who don't want to eat raw egg, there is no egg in the ingredient list. Rare cheesecake uses gelatin for setting the cake, you can make it without using the oven. 
You may ask why I add the gelatin in the strawberry puree, because I want the swirl to have the same texture and firmness as the cheeescake (it won't separate or sink).
