What strawberry cheescake recipe do you think would be easier to make, looks and sounds better..?

A close relative of mine has a huge birthday coming up (60th) and I want to make her a strawberry cheescake, I have not made one before so I am a little wary.

I was just searching online and I came across these two recipes..

http://www.thebritishmenu.com/puddingsdesserts/str...

http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&s...

The only thing about the second one, is that my relative is not a great lover of icing but I thought once everything is mixed together she will enjoy it.

As I have not made cheesecake before, I am not sure what would be the best option, or if it would just be better to make regular cheesecake

    First one look delicious. You could just main a plain one and a homemade strawberry sauce separately.
