(simple) soft touch cheesecake
- The illustration for this came from several hard stares at a stuffed hippo in a store in
Faneuil Hall in downtown Boston to fix the image for a later sketch which bob revealed to
an adult education cartoon class instructor who was working on a book on greeting card
products. It found a place in it, bob's first official published sketch if you discount
the high school yearbook drawings (class of 1970).
Designing Greeting Cards and Paper
Products: A Complete Guide, by Ron Lister, ISBN: 0-13-201880-2,
Prentice Hall, p.154. This was the time that
Sandra Boynton had just revolutionized the greeting card industry
with her hippos and other whimsical creatures that climbed from nowhere into a major subindustry. A fact that was not lost on bob. Who, however, continued on in physics
- 2019 sees a newer version of this classic, just doing the classic
hazelnut cheesecake base with the Frangelico switched out to a strawberry
cream liqueur, but using the fresh strawberry topping from the original dr
bob foray into the cheesecake business.
